Corporeal Cartography: The Embrace
CARTOGRAPHY: THE EMBRACE was created through a process of scanning two people embracing with

The audio is recordings of voices whispering. The voices are intimate, for each
other only. The outside world doesn’t exist. The exploration of the bodies
surfaces in the Unity space is a false intimacy. The body viewed in this
way, compressed and up close is like a digitally traversable landscape.
The body is intrinsically connected to the outside world. The concept of body as place is
common in art. Where does the
body, intimacy, and place converge online? Where does it cease to exist?
