I feel, therefore I am. In this regard, the skin acts as the frontier between the individual and our surroundings. Touch confirms our existence. Through sight, through touch, through sympathy, through work in general we are with the others. All relationships are transitive. "I touch an object and I see another person, but I am not that person. I am completely alone" .. extract from the book "The Time and the Other" from Emmanuel Levinas. In the video "journal" I feel my way past various locations led by a different destination. I am both adult and child at the same time. This is a method not just of feeling, but also transforming the contour of the self. Our skin is a border crossing.
