The main idea of the project is to make pleasure and not art. I primarily focus on the spectator's feelings and needs. I imagine the visitors watch many artworks at the exhibition and they get totally tired and just need a bit rest - and for that they can enjoy a massage in the massage chair. As a user of my object you can feel good in the name of art. The project works with a vibration producing a pleasant feeling. I have used the vibration as the main concept of the artwork already in two previous projects – “Future Kiss” and “The Will”. In this project the vibration provides a real massage in the massage chair. Visitors can have a rest and enjoy the mental as well as a physical pleasure of the provided massage. In this case my art object works as a medium which prepares the visitor for a new artistic experience.
