“Triacouch” is an interactive installation, somewhat a tool enabling temporary, easy access to the CouchSurfing community.
Placed in the public domain, we believe new members can be reached, and the fear of meeting a stranger could be overcome.
The installation is to be seen as way of linking active members and non members. To achieve this, the “Triacouch” set up is made of modular furniture and communication mediators, crossing the web and physical world. Each active member gets designated to a puppet in the installation, which serves as a mediator. The visitors can establish live communication with the active members, or between each other, by playful exploration of the puppets and furniture feature.
Just pick up a puppet and try a couch!
