2017 7a*md8 - On Line
Sunday October 29 to Saturday November 4
During my residency I will enact a series of movements. howyoufeel will explore touch through virtual filters, zooms and mediations. How are you moved when I move? Do I leave a mark? Is the response lodged in the exhale of your gaze? Does it feel the same when I am touching me vs. you touching me? I am invested in these platforms as a locus or moment of connection. This series is a loose eyelash is hot breath impressed upon cold glass.
