This installation "(don't) touch me" looks at translating an emotion into visual art without naming it.
Over five months, needles and beeswax were brought together using fire. During the process of creating, the artist had to keep focusing on the emotion they were exploring to make sure it would be represented in the final work. The shape of the object was not planned. The object was placed in a small white but imperfect room and during 13 hours of work 100 meters of string were stretched through it and covered in beeswax. The installation was set up to allow one viewer at a time to take two steps into the room.
