My name is Collin Burger and I am an electrical and computer engineer trying to escape my fate of dwelling in a cubicle.  I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering  at CMU in order to delay my aforementioned fate and perhaps make some entertaining things in the process.  Thematically, I am interested in cultural analytics, people’s relationships with technology, and humorous artworks.

Feelers Feelers

Feelers is an interactive installation with game elements in which two participants control the environment with skin to skin contact.  Participants are attached to the installation and instructed to match colored lights and the frequency of two sine waves by varying the area and pressure of skin contact.  Spectators are treated to a voyeuristic display of the players’ actions that possesses the quality of a foreign ritual. Feelers invites participants and spectators to explore each other’s bodies and investigate the notions of personal space.

Feelers is funded in part by the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art at the Frontier.
