‘Looking Fingers’ is a new collection inspired by ‘The Skin is an Extension of the Brain’ presented at Object Rotterdam 2019.

The goal of the work is to engage with the public on a purely tactile level. The material and the shapes are meant to trigger curiosity for the eyes, but the last judges are the fingers.

Margherita envisions the body as a platform that produces experiences. Her work wants to emphasize the importance of touch in our daily surroundings. In a society that relies mainly on sight, she wants to make possible to ‘see’ with other sense by creating intimate, personal and interactive relations between her works and the visitors.

With ‘Looking Fingers’ she explores how tactility can serve architecture by creating site-specific works which are altering standard architectural elements, and how tactility can be as well expressed on a wall.
