Still/Moving received a State of Emergency Commission by The Box, Plymouth's new museum, art gallery and cultural centre at the end of the summer of lockdown, 2020. The project titled 'touch' explores the two metre distance of safety forced under the pandemic regulations. Still/Moving invited members of the public in locations around Plymouth to hold illuminated words at a distance. The words magnify our state of isolation and our dependence: our need to keep distanced coupled with our longing for interconnectedness, revealing a shared vulnerability in the face of the unknown workings of the virus
The words hold, me, touch, beside and you, were created using the same low voltage LED technology used in Speedwell.
The Box is open to the general public from Tuesday 29 September 2020
