Seems like Katrin Baumgarten is fixated on one emotion only -- let me give you a hint via her 'Disgusted Objects' project. Hot on the heels of her last art installation, 'Aesthetics of Disgust,' she has decided to illicit the strong feeling in inanimate objects.

Through her 'Disgusted Objects,' she simulates squirming and goosebumps reactions as soon as it comes in contact with a human touch. According to the UK-based artist, “I am interested in the transformation between the states of disgust to comfort. Abstract objects respond to your behavior and disgust becomes a part of interaction.”
