Box with holes

Individual performance/installation

Box with holes is a performance/installation to be visited by 1 spectator at the time. Each spectator goes through a session, which last about 10 - 15 mim (Reservation of day and time is necessary).
Box with holes seeks to explore the relationship between touch and its visualisation.
How do we see and experience inter-human interaction in a world where we contact each other more and more through technology?
Box with holes focuses on a displacement of the senses, which places the spectator into another mental state.
The intention is to make the spectator go through a physical experience of touch during the performance and see if this can affect perception.
Box with holes is an intimate and anonymous experience that feels real, but looks and appears different through the use of video.
