Synthetic Touch

This project focuses on the gap in connection brought about by lack of touch and physical presence during the on-going UK lockdown.

For many, this period has been a time of considerable self-reflection. I used a camera which has been converted to shoot in infrared light. Infrared has the ability to physically penetrate the skin further than visible light. By using this medium I was able to look ‘inside’ the subjects and conceptually investigate the human experience and notions of physical disconnect.
