Abstract

he Catalogue of Touch offers a provocative and playful commentary on the commodifi -cation and commercialisation of touch and digital touch through a series of artistic responses. It imagines a menu of purchasable touch experiences facilitated by touch professionals – these respond to themes from my research on how people frame touch and digital touch in narratives of loneliness.
