Hug Me or Punch Me

Interactive Installation

 

March 2016

  

As one of the most iconic and common used toys, a teddy bear can easily evoke private emotions or awakes innocence. Having a 6.5-foot giant teddy bear alone in a relatively closed interior space, the audience notices that they were allowed to do whatever they want to the bear — hugging, punching, or anything else. The intention of this piece is to evoke the inner world of the audience at the moment, through their various interactions triggered by the bear.
