Do Not Touch, 2000
Sheet of aluminum, braille inscription
1,4” x 5”

Do Not Touch is a Braille-based paradox created by Merhi in the late 90s and exhibited for the first time in 2000. It is made out of a sheet of metal (originally aluminum and then silver) which has a Braille inscription that reads "DO NOT TOUCH."

The work unfolded a variety of possibilities in terms of distribution, leading the artist to adapt the concept into t-shirts. "Do not touch" is distributed by Seek-Art and the New Museum, located in New York.

Collection: Private.
Prototype: Museo de Arte Valencia, Valencia, Venezuela.
