Sophia Rodriguez (VE/BE): Friction
The current research project starts from the understanding that friction is gradually eliminated from our lives and societies by the space it advances in the society of fear. This process is radically intensified by the current health crisis. We define friction as the mechanism of giving and receiving between opposing forces. Friction occurs physically, but also mentally. Starting from this understanding of friction, we want to investigate how a friction practice can effect transformation.
