A close encounter with someone is the moment when each universe meets.
The reflection of users is filled with glittering stars and creates an unexpected moment when they are in close proximity to each other. As an engaging interactive projection for one person, or as a chance to the close encounter for two people, this project aims to provide users an experience of emotional contact generated by physical touch. Processing and kinect v2 are used.

"Physical contact is an influential aspect of human encounters. Touch both influences and expresses interpersonal bonding; touch can communicate emotion, and can for example also decrease stress. Physical contact can increase compliance with requests, even when a person is not consciously aware physical contact has occurred."
