ASSIGNMENT 'the sense of touch' is a series of images commissioned by Spicers Papers to highlight the tactile quality of specialty paper maker Fedrigoni's product range.
"Our sense of touch is an immediate, tactile pathway to our imagination, emotions and possibilities. Few things live in the memory like touch"
APPROACH The tactile nature of the papers was the starting point of the project. The feeling, emotion and visual imagery were lead by the qualities of each paper. Dreamlike imagery bridging our external and internal worlds, blending sensation and memory. Revealing how our bodies instinctively reach out to touch, strolling through soft grasses, our fingers tracing a drip down a window.
RESULTS A booklet made from specialIty Fedrigoni papers, incorporating imagery on selected pages to invite the reader to touch.
