    Pouffy is an animated couch that provides a companionable presence in a room through a gentle breathing motion and sound. The coat of long, wispy faux fur accentuates the rise and fall of the breathing ‘body’ of the work. Coaxing the onlooker with inviting sounds that softly seek attention, Pouffy appeals to anyone nearby to come close and interact. When sat upon, Pouffy emits an excited and friendly stream of gurgles, warbles and tweets. As the participant sits and strokes the faux fur surface, Pouffy responds with a conversational engaging and entertaining variation of acoustic parameters
