Ailish Maher: All This Silent Space
All This Silent Space examines thoughts on loneliness and social disconnectedness. It looks at the importance and effect of touch, social interaction and the way in which the absence of that can effect the body.
How do we engage our bodies and our senses in order to reconnect with ourselves and others?
