Intimate Transactions is a new type of interactive installation that allows two people located in separate spaces to interact simultaneously using only their bodies.

Each participant uses a physical interface called a ‘Bodyshelf’. By gently moving their bodies on this ‘smart furniture’ they instigate ‘Intimate Transactions’, which influence an evolving ‘world’ created from digital imagery, multichannel sound and tactile feedback.

As this highly immersive experience evolves, each participant begins to sense their place in a complex web of relations that connect them, and everything else within the work.
