This video is a relatable ritual-in-action. The men in this video are representing the feelings and desires of millions of men everywhere who have felt exceptionally touch-deprived and isolated over the course of the past year months. This isolation and touch deprivation is nothing new for many men who continue to feel alone in a world where there are so many of us who long for the same thing: touch and connection.This video is capable of conveying several messages, subject to timing of release, and each individual viewer’s perception of past, present and future. The video can serve as an archive which documents a moment when we consciously, collectively made the shift from “me” to “we”. The video can convey a return, in the present moment, to touch and connection after a long period of isolation and touch deprivation. The video can represent a dream men hold, to feel more connected, and to see that connection represented in the bodies, faces, and expressions of this diverse group of men.
