Framed within the culture of looking but not touching, “Beyond Boundaries” is the result of an exploratory process around the sensory limits of human biology. It proposes how through technology, understood as a transformative element, and more specifically through haptic texture, we can transgress these limits. “Beyond Boundaries” explores new languages of interaction that are more natural and intuitive for the body through tactile stimulation.
We propose psychology as a potential field of action. We find an example in the context of spontaneous abortion, a reality conditioned by the biological sensory experience, since it requires the prior gestation of a fetus. Therefore, the project becomes tangible in a kit for the self-production of skin patches, compostable and customizable, which help to materialize the different phases of the mourning process due to gestational loss and complement the traditional therapeutic process, using texture as an emotional unblocking element, oriented equally towards the pregnant woman and the couple.
