(dis)embodied in space is comprised of six interconnected installations among which the audience-participants were invited to move around and interact freely:
cataract, un clin du corps, surface|tension,
aisthēsis, flōt, and ambedo.

Each installation explores different elements of virtual touch, presence, and intimate connection between audience-participants, performer-participants, and the physical and virtual space between.

The overall installation space was intended to promote a sense of calm, encouraging the audience-participants to explore, play, and discover new ways of connecting through virtual touch.
