Skin Hunger

Elena Horgan

Description

Skin Hunger is an experimental short exploring touch and intimacy in modern society. As we have become increasingly focused on communication and connection digitally, we are neglecting our primal need for physical human contact. Skin Hunger is a term used by psychologists for the desire for physical contact with another person. It may be the longing for an embrace, or the need for connection that can’t be met with words, a call, a text or even video chat.
