During the pandemic the body was restrained in several ways and our relation to the city, our everyday spaces and social environment were restrained, transformed, negotiated. Our habitual encounters and relations with others were transformed and new forms of being in the world emerged.
In the film, we audio visually embody a few of the interfaces of social distancing. While we know them affectively from the inside, they are explored visually from the outside. In exploring the emerging encounters to companion species and to the city, we are interested in how social distancing affects us, our bodies, our skin, our everyday environments, and how it creates situations in which proximity and distance are negotiated anew. Remarkably, how the movement of social distancing can also be a movement of a new intimacy.
