A body is necessary for a tactile interface to a material world. In humans we have a certain Galvanic Skin Response which may be measured, and which then presumably gives us information on the individuals affective state. By making a skin out of layers of conductive fabric and touch sensitive conductive rubber, one may be able to mimick that feature, as well as communicating with its (sub)consciousness. Below is a picture of a foam body which soon will be clothed in such a skin. It will first be tested as an interface to communicate with my Closed Ecologic Circuits.
