come closer ‧͙⁺˚*•̩̩͙♡

Floating on the eternal stream, drowning in the feelings

going with the flow is not easy, you need to let yourself be taken by the stream, it will guide you there

i’m reaching out to for your hand through the screen

can we touch?

can we break through the (surface) tension

floating on the water, drifting away, reaching out for your hand, your gaze

The work is contemplating on the utopian promise of connection on the internet and the intrinsic longing for community and romance. As a sanctuary for queer communities, intimacy for marginalised people is possible online. Anonymity can offer exploration, a free flow of desire. The poem guides through the stream of the video, as the character ruminates on the analogy between the endless streams of the internet and water, being taken by the current, which will leading to our desire. As the water is uniting, dissolving the boundaries and filling the gaps between us, we become one in the ooze.
