Drawing on the feeling of isolation brought on by the ongoing pandemic, a visual narrative is created exploring
how we can regain touch during a time when it is so heavily discouraged. In this book, shadows reclaim a physical presence,
questioning whether touching the shadow of something can be the same as touching the thing itself.
The hand-stitched pattern along the spine was designed by the artist, utilizing elements of traditional japanese stab binding techniques.
