Motion-Contacto is an exhibition of fourteen interactive ceramic sculptures and one video. The title references movement with the word Motion and the act of touching with the Spanish word Contacto.

The sounds produced by interacting with the work will entice the viewers to explore the possibilities of physical interaction.
