Single Channel Video

What role, if any, does touch play in your everyday life?
Relatively little, aside from the occasional hug to a friend.

What is your preferred touch (a texture, a feeling, a type of contact)
I prefer smoother textures and physical contact only from people I trust.

Can you recall a memorable touch or physical interaction from your past that has imprinted on you?
I told someone I no longer wanted to date them. They slapped me in the face and stormed out of my apartment. I was shocked but also proud of getting through it.

What has been your experience with this project? (Thoughts, feelings, takeaways)
I was uncomfortable but I learned that I don't have to be quite so frightened by closer physical contact.
