Embrace in Progress

A series of sculptures exploring the complex dynamics of physical intimacy for those unaccustomed to physical contact.

Embrace in Progress explores conflicted feelings of shared intimacy, it is inspired by research about time-based media, 3D scanning technology, and personal experiences with physical intimacy. The project was influenced by slit-scan photography and uses depth sensors to capture a series of intimate embraces. These 3D printed pieces recreate the act of embracing and are represented in a static form by the flow of movement twisted because of time.
