We hope to open up a dialogue with the viewer, a space for (self)-reflection and transformation. We hope the audience may be challenged to reevaluate their experience and ideas about intimacy. We hope to trigger the viewer’s curiosity about the Other, someone else who may be different, and increase our empathic ability to place ourselves inside that Other’s skin.
