Franz E. Walther (b. 1939, Germany)
I like the idea of audience physically engaging with the work and often look for ways to incorporate such elements in my work. Here is a nice example of how it may work – and I especially like it for its conceptual quality. It is not just something you are allowed to touch in order to include tactility of the texture into your sensory reading of the work, but bodily engagement that activates concepts of distance and connectedness, seeing and not seeing, communication etc. Concepts materialised in ways bypassing verbal articulation are cool. I also like that audience engagement (beyond simply looking at work) is needed in order to complete the work.
