About the Work
When asked to list the basic necessities of life, people often think of food, water and traditional shelter. One doesn’t tend to think of ‘touch,’ despite the fact that we need physical human contact to thrive. Whether an embrace between friends, lovers or family members, very few acts can produce as immediate a feeling of connection as a hug. In the comfort and security of each other’s arms, we are able to say, without words and beyond all doubt, “I care.”
