Touch Off, 2022
Touch Off, examines a speculative reading of touch within politics. The recent events of a global pandemic emerging prevented individuals from interacting through touch with the fear that hands are infection transmitters. This image questions the future of politics where political leaders can not practice the handshake as a symbol of agreement. How does the absence of a handshake from such a landscape affect the decisions that are being made and thus their repercussions?
While the image does not question a better or worse, it invites the viewer to imagine a new future where this act is fading out and perhaps with it will fade a draining reading of our contemporary political climate.
