On Shame is part of the series Psychosomatics which was initiated in 2010. In these works Franco makes it possible to tangibly experience such emotions as joy, fear, confusion, happiness or shame by means of digital technologies. Cameras and motion and tactile sensors serve as tools to facilitate the dialogue between humans and machines. The sensitive sculpture On Shame features a semi-spherical interface that distorts the reflected image of the person peering inside as well as the accompanying fragments of sound and dialogue.
