S P A C E between. // IN session
INTIMACY. Each relationship is built up with our own space around us. Everything is just an energy which indicates the bond between us. It is very interesting to observe how your relationship is based on the very first feeling – experience and most of the time words are irrelevant. They are not even important.
In S P A C E between I was exploring the idea of meeting a stranger through a personal/intimate space without words, without seeing each other. There is just an empty space, body and energy which indicates the relationship between beings and makes us move or dance with each other.
S P A C E between is everything and everywhere. It could be measured in the pause, in the number, silence or something you cannot really define. It works as an energy, some sort of force and it lead us to explore everything around and beyond. It makes you curious, it moves you, it gives you a power. Everything is possible.
I wanted to catch both of the strangers perspectives. The duality of the image and moment. I wanted to show the intimacy, the fragility and the emotions. Sharpness and softness. Breathing. Sharing. Closeness. Distance. Collapse. A drive. Bond.
