A pillow and two chairs are stationed near a wall. Hold the pillow or sit on a chair. Through a set of headphones, a voice describes an odd sensation, such as "falling backward into a tub of Jello." This message is also projected on the floor and on the wall behind the user. Vibrations travel through the chair or pillow to stimulate the user's body and evoke the described sensation, combining language and touch. Designed by Eric Gunther, Sosolimited.
