Fingeryeyes is a life-sized version of a head-massager spider. Head spider massagers (or scalp massagers) originally came from Australia, designed by Aborigines who noted the benefits of using long, multi-twigged branches for a rigorous, thorough head massage. The head-massager works by stimulating the nerves and the blood circulation on the head and neck, inducing a good feeling and a deeply soothing massage that will relax your body from head to toes. The object, in this blown-up size, would create more possibilities of interaction with the body, generating both distance and cultivating new sensations in/over the other body. Fingeryeyes is about multi-medium sensing.
