Veilance is an interactive wall installation that senses the viewer’s touch and responds by morphing its form. Veilance can be played with a simple touch of a hand to one of the loops, an action which starts the upward and downward flows of the chains.
The project was conceived as a metaphor for one’s emotional wall. In the post-election political climate where the regional, political, religious, ideological, and generational division of people had been highlighted, Manako wanted to explore ways to visualize the interaction in which one lifts an emotional barrier and connects with others. The capacitive sensor was chosen to represent this interaction through a physical touch, and ball chains were selected for the emotional barrier.
