This artist duo erects a portal as a symbol of the borderland between meeting in the same physical space and in the digital world.

Digital services are advancing at a rapid pace. Artificial intelligence, AI, is expected to provide answers to many questions. The duo asserts that communication via screens is everyday life for most, but not actually for all, people. The artists observe how physical touch decreases when digitalization increases. They highlight the value of us humans physically touching each other and ask us the following questions: How can we ensure that the tactile is not lost in the digital age? Can we use digital experiences to improve our physical world, instead of pushing us away from it?
