Where does personal space ends? Where does the space of the other begin? What relationships are generated when the space itself is influenced by the presence of others? Can two strangers maintain an intimate relationship without intending it? Proxemia is a reflection on space and interpersonal distance. My interest lies in the way in which a situation of intimacy between people can be constructed, given only by the proximity of the bodies. "At the intimate distance, the presence of another person is unmistakable and can sometimes be very annoying because of the great influx of sensory data: the vision (often deformed), the smell, the heat of the other person's body, the sound, the smell and the sensation of breath, everything combines to indicate the unmistakable relationship with another body".
