Archival images of people joyfully in close contact are used to express how hesitant we are now to touch.

“I’ve been working with archival 16mm film and am exploring re-creation of meaning using these old moving images. There’s a lot of silence around my creativity these days, often because I’m running out of words to express the surreal and disorienting feelings of our present pause. I was drawn to the images of joy and contact and recognize how hesitant we are now to touch.” – Ana Valine
