Untouched

This project has been performed with a rolling scanner, in order to recreate the similar sense of touch. Applying the scanner on one surface for documenting reminds me of this intimate, undesired and sometimes shocking contacts with unknown and random persons. 

Setting the pieces of my skin scans against the car seat background texture, hovers between aggression and anxiety on the one hand and a sense of repression and complicity on the other hand. I chose car seat textures as background of the image as it is the representation of taxi and public transport as a main location for these encounters and also the pattern implies the sense of strain.
