Measuration of Relationship, 2018
“One of the mosteffective ways to learn about oneself is by taking seriously the cultures of others. It forces you to pay attention to those details of life which differentiate them from you”.
– Edward T. Hall, The Silent Language
The installation is about the distance in interpersonal relationships. People have different tolerability of distances between themselves and others. The interaction among people is inherently complex and is affected by various factors: culture, languages, and even thermal.
Although the boundary among people is invisible and can be hard to describe in words, people still can feel its existence. It makes me wonder what are the deciding factors used for people to feel or calculate the distance towards each other. The process is based on the theory of Edward T. Hall and my own viewpoints, by visualizing the paradoxical and unstable feeling toward the enviable boundary in interpersonal relationship.
I believe interpersonal relationships is an issue which bothers most of us nowadays in modern society. By understanding these hidden dimensions among people, it will help us learn how to communicate with not only ourselves but with the society.
