Iris is a pair of hands that communicates with participants by hand gestures solely. Through interacting with Iris, audience will then discover and create the language to “talk” with her, which leads to the investigation of human’s behavioral codes by manifesting hand gestures in a mischievous manner.
Iris is responsive to the audience’s hand gestures when they put theirs inside a designated device. Their hands are then detected and analyzed. The gestures are scrutinized and responded by an array of rules that audience may explore through communication. Since the installation keeps learning different combinations of hand gestures by recording to an online database, it will keep expanding persistently. Artists will respond dynamically according to the database. Gradually, unique hand gestures of Iris will be generated through interaction.
