Intimacy of Friendship
As we confront a touch-starved world due to a global pandemic & the loneliness epidemic, the value of intimacy within platonic relationships was explored through my friends’ & my own shared vulnerabilities. The project unfolded into a film/motion piece inclusive of my friends’ voices directly facilitating the narrative. There had to be a rawness & realness in describing intimacy by inviting the audience into our deeply personal connections to each other, which were further explored through various physical tests inspired by phycologists Arthur & Elaine Aron’s 36 questions exercises.Creating Intimacy of Friendship was a nonlinear process involving a lot of exploration, discomfort, & in a meta-sense, even more shared intimacy in the resulting breach of boundaries between ourselves & an audience.
