Touch, when is it ok and when it is not?
This this year with because of Covid, we needed to think before we hugged or even shook hands. It made me think about sexual harassments: about new rules and new boundaries. But it also made me think about touching boundaries in art. All those thoughts made me think about the interaction and that I want to create a few models that will each have different touch boundaries and the viewer will need to explore them. The project tries to explore the boundaries of touching and raising the question "if people can know what are other people's boundaries".
