Life imitates art

Trevor Noah featured a clip from “Ontario, Canada” on his show yesterday about a social distancing hug contraption. Looks like a less-fluffy variation of the work I showed at the Anna Leonowens Gallery in December.

Here’s my work “Armed” – a pair of furry arms which allows you to hug the person inside, and a furry arm which allows you to put your arm around or pat the head of someone outside. Below, an overview of some work-in-progress photos posted on Instagram and a link to view it in action on Instagram.
