The Tactility of Everyday Objects documented the surface textures of everyday objects through the pencil rubbings.

Objects included water bottles, hand sanitizer bottles, cutting knives, pens, toothbrushes, and so on. With the design of these textures, users/consumers can easily grasp tools and twist the bottle caps. Through this experiment, the tactile textures were translated into visual images. This experiment aims to raise the awareness that our brains often overlook the everyday tactile experiences with our hands.
