At the Finissage of the exhibition BROKEN LINES, I quietly sneaked up to visitors and stood next to them in a suspiciously close range. Depending on the situation, I also did other actions such as circling them with a distance between us, slightly brushing them as I walk past and sometimes drawing sustained eye contacts with them. All of these actions were subtle and not blatant, but engendered a certain sense of transgression in people to their personal space.
