The Pre-Handshake Device Provokes 'Uncomfortable Conversations'

Considering all the strife the world has suffered due to unfortunate miscommunications and misunderstandings, the Pre-Handshake Device hopes to bridge the gaps that continue to tear our species apart. Granted, it is simply an art installation, yet it promotes and encourages discussions about such problems.

Designed by Dominic Wilcox, the Pre-Handshake Device is part of the 'Uncomfortable Conversations' exhibition during the New York Design Week 2010. The fact that reconciliation may never be reached due to such discomfort, this installation shows that there can be a happy medium, one that starts with tradition and ends with the possibility of friendship.
