“Fetish Finger“ combines experimental video clips that deal with the complexity of haptic perception in the context of screen based digital media. The moving images are associatively concerned with the contact at the interface between the physical and the virtual, activeness and passiveness.
In addition to the images, the 2D and 3D animations along with the YouTube footage of “Food Diaries” are included. Formally, „Fetish Finger“ is to be read as if scrolling down a webpage.
