A future you can touch was a participatory installation created for the Anti-Auto Show at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit, curated by Spread Art. The work encouraged gallery-goers to interact with other pieces in the exhibit as if they were at a car show. Each index card contained either a question or a mildly insinuating suggestion; some cards allowed for direct user feedback and response in writing.
The work was structured to mimic a social situation (the auto show) within a misapplied context (a gallery show). It was a test about the limits and successes of imaginative suggestions to alter a given context for a single individual.
