The viewer responding to the video as to another body and to the screen as another skin. - Laura U. Marks
Sensuous Touch reflects on the memory of touch. The work responds to Laura U. Marks theory of haptic visuality (a sense of touch generated through sight). The work elicits empathy through visuals that connect the viewer to their memory of touch, by utilising cinematic techniques of intimate close-up shots, fading and layering of imagery.
