Touchscreen devices have become so ubiquitous that the five multi-touch gestures we use to operate them are now entirely second nature to us (and first nature to babies who are introduced to tablets as their first interactive experiences). Design student Gabriele Meldaikyte has translated what these gestures would look like if they were used to interact with analog objects, creating interactive sculptures that mimic the multi-touch experiences of tap, scroll, flick, swipe, and pinch. As much as these gestures are a part of our present habits, things inevitably change. Meldaikyte believes that :
…in ten years or so these gestures will completely change. Therefore, my aim is to perpetuate them so they become accessible for future generations.
