Hug Me

What is the feeling in the essence of a hug? Love? Happiness? Can it be just a social behavior?

“Hug Me” aims to conceptualize an interactive multimedia installation that creates ambiences according to how people hug. Using sensors on a mannequin, we will try to understand different kinds of hugging based on arm positions and strength. Around the place where the person and the mannequin are, video shall be projected and sounds shall be played according to each kind of hugging.
