touching with your eyes 

a walk

Stay LIVE, Unlocked Walks, The Residents Association

In this walk I am offering to reflect on touch in the times of the pandemic. On the agreed time and date we all go out for a walk, wherever we are, and join the same whatsapp group. We follow the score: "Go out on a walk. Take photos of all the things and surfaces you would like to touch. But don't touch them". As the photos start to pour into the chat, a very sensual and collective sensations emerges, even though we are not physically touching anything.
