Artist Talk: Holly Hanessian
In 2012 Holly Hanessian (Professor of Ceramics at Florida State University) developed "Touch in Real Time" as a participatory project to explore the intimate act of touch in our digitally mediated age. First performed in Tallahassee, the artist would shake a stranger’s hand with a wet lump of clay, imprinting the participant’s hand with her own. The handshakes lasted approximately 20 seconds, the amount of time it takes for the brain to release the bonding hormone oxytocin.
