2017 Proxemics by Hannah Thompson
Thompson has created colorful and discomforting shapes and will activate them with performances of soft sculpture wearables.
The sculptures are membranes to be resisted against, barriers to be broken through both separating and connecting people.
The sculptures have bodily connotations challenging the ideas of proximity. This work will question how our bodies exist in physical space and reframe everyday interactions.
