Unfocused Touch is a project by the choreographer Ruben Reniers (Jakarta, 1979) and the visual artist Carlos Collado (Barcelona, 1977), consisting of a photographic series and a short film. In this project Collado and Reniers explore the emotions that arise from the “new normal” due to the 2020 pandemic. The film searches for new ways to illustrate choreographic movement and focuses on five concepts: uncertainty, isolation, memory, life and death.
