Intimate Spaces / Intimate Distances

Fine Art

How do we make sense of / maintain intimacy with six feet (or more) between the bodies of our friends, family, lovers, strangers, etc.?

Intimate Spaces / Intimate Distances is about creating tools to visualize and understand social distance; finding ways to reinterpret it, to make it more comfortable or perhaps even more beautiful; and to create a new kind of intimacy. This project is on-going.

In times of uncertainty we have a choice to be kind or to be cruel, to find intimacy in unexpected places or to create even more distance. My hope is that by offering an option for positive action, we may be encouraged to choose the former.
