Washing Hands - Building Conversation

'Washing Hands' is a ritual, designed to bring physical contact back into the public space. The visitors, who may or may not know each other, will be asked to take up a position on either side of a transparent screen around a washbasin. By washing each other's hands with soap, the possibility for physical contact is re-created. The aim is to explore what impact social distancing and the lack of physical contact has had on the way in which we relate to each other. Have we become more distant or have we found different ways to remain connected?
