Fig. 2. Lygia Clark, Sensorial Gloves, 1968. (Photo courtesy of CDOC/Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro) Part of her Nostalgia of the Body series, Clark's gloves are made of various materials, sizes and textures. The gloves aim at a rediscovery of touch. Participants use the many combinations of gloves and balls of different sizes, textures and weights, and then hold the balls again with bare hands. Artists exploring touch-related issues in virtual space have also developed special gloves.
