August 10

I had recorded my experiment-- 'intimacy between strangers' into my sketchbook. I asked several classmates to assist me and paired them at random. During the experiment, I asked them to do something a couple might do, like hug, hold hands and kiss. I recorded their reactions on film. It is also the most influential research in my project. By watching this short film time by time, I learnt the process of people getting intimate and their awkwardness afterwards made me think about why it is special and develop it further.
