Description What is the distance that separates you from others?
Have you ever thought how that distance feels?
How it affects you?

There is something about personal distance that interests me deeply. It changes in every country, but also we treat that space differently at home, at work and on the street. What is it? Can you feel it like an extension of your own body? when do we start acknowledging it and making it part of our daily life?

For me is just amazing how developed those elements are in our life, and how little aware of it we are. There is something so important about space between people; we are probably like fish in the water, dancing together from the distance without knowing it.
