Jens Tiemann — How we meet again [?]

Convergence — Winter 2020

As we look back on 2020, we remember the limitations to ourselves and the lack of sensing other bodies. Therefore we developed a concept in which we explore the feeling of touch and connection whilst not actually touching.

Have we already forgotten what touch feels like?

Will we have the desire to touch one another again?

Suits with attached magnets – producing magnetic fields: an invisible force that people can feel – repel each other causing the bodies wearing them to feel a person without actually touching and possibly also creating connections and feelings we have never felt before.

In collaboration with Lucie Jo Knilli. Special thanks to Funkhaus Berlin.
