Library of Encounters

 

Library of Encounters

 

We live in a constant steam of invisible encounters with our surrounding environment. Throughout our life we leave a constant stream of encounters behind us as our bodies touch the surrounding surfaces. The piece "Library of Encounters" visualises this stream of encounters. 

How do the textures and surfaces surrounding us shape our lives, or how we shape them? How do these millions of invisible encounters look like? 

"Library of Encounters" project was commissioned by Somerset House 2018 for the Late night during  By the deep, by the mark exhibition. The piece explores the human connection and presence in Somerset House. It explores the meeting points with the structures and surfaces of Somerset House with the constant stream of visitors it has every day. The piece consist of a performance by Misa Koide, library of encounters exhibition and a workshop for the visitors.
