FROM THE ARTIST:
Are you bored of being ‘accidentally’-and-not touched on public spaces? The Magic Space Reclaimer is the new trend and is here to save your life! This projects aims to question personal space by advertising a tool that could be useful and effective and it consists of a skirt and a small monitor that you can put in your bag and have it everywhere with you. Through a screen, this video attempts to make the viewer visualise this thin line between solemnity and joke, reflecting issues of contemporary society.
