Design and concept for Distant Feel, a body of work from French artist Antoine Catala, in collaboration with Droga5, displayed at both the New Museum Triennial as well as the Carnegie Museum of Art. The pieces address the way images provoke emotion, especially as they travel virtual and physical distances via the internet.
The work takes an interest in the myriad ways we express feelings, through the very technology that increasingly mediates our daily lives. We developed a new approach to the sentiment of empathy, embodied in both a symbol, E3, and the phrase “distant feel.”
