Physical distancing in pandemic times has translated into sustained social isolation for many of us.

Operating within this new normal – which inhibits our evolutionarily hard-wired need to connect with others – 36 Questions that Lead to Love  is an invitation to explore intimacy and generate interpersonal closeness across a virtual divide through a scored series of shared confidences.

36 Questions that Lead to Love  refers to a 20-year long study by the psychologist Arthur Aron and his team, that explores whether intimacy between two strangers can be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions. One participant at a time will join the artist for 50 minutes on Zoom, and work through the 36 questions together. The experience will culminate with handwriting a letter and reverse-pickpocketing it.
