L”Keep each other safe and bright by being together, but 6ft apart.”
Distance Makes Your Heart Grow Fonder (2020) is a series of interactive lighting objects that intervene into our current social dilemma where maintaining physical distance from each other is a way of keeping each other safe and bright, but this isolation could come at the cost of mental health. The project aims to positively influence individual’s attitudes and feelings towards the 6 feet rule, which can lead to behavioral changes, while reminding us that social experiences remain valuable and are our source of hope.
The video is the first work in the series. The light bulb changes its brightness according to the signal strengths between the light and a person nearby.
