Digitie is a real-time communication channel that connects two places. For both sides, it is only a little test of courage to put a hand inside the gadget. The two hands of strangers, from far distant places, meet each other real-time on a screen. Then, they can wave, handshake or arm wrestle — all the possibilities of gesticulation and interaction are open. The interlocutors playfully determine their own form of non-verbal communication. The project illustrates the importance and representation of analog, but technological forms of communication by using human hands. How can we generate and receive information of body language, especially of emotions, using digital media?
