Through the screens of our communication devices we bridge distances and get in touch with each other without any movement in physical space. Distance is excluded; movement is limited to the actions of scrolling up or down, publishing, liking, looking for content and loading the feeds list. On this vertical stage everyone is a user who follows his or her own trail through the flows of information, and self-curates a space in which to reside.

My research into the behavior of the body in physical space shows how human evolution was shaped to negotiate and preserve space, and how different spatial levels of intimacy allow us to communicate with others. Our daily movement is choreographed by contemporary needs, based on archetypical behavior.

A floor plan becomes the medium to read and explain human behavior as on a theater stage. Any situation or play can be projected onto this surface to make the audience aware of the mechanism that regulates our lives in physical and virtual space.
