Intimacy of social distancing is a compilation of images recorded on a smartphone before, during and after the quarantine period between February and June 2020. It captures moments of urban daily life in a city that houses millions of people, symbols and lights. This trilogy shows images in which the viewer can easily empathize and look at the other with affection, appreciating the shared moments that life constantly brings us everyday. From an anthropological point of view, this piece contains a message to appreciate life’s inherent beauty no matter what the circumstances are. The images take us away from the consumerist perspective of everyday life, claiming the "humanly human" and advocating the approach between people through observation.
The Arscientic Andism – my romantic manifesto
Director Denise Schellmann
Completion Date:June 10, 2020
My romantic manifesto of the Arscientic Andism is an unofficial pronouncement directed only at myself.
It manifests my path to access the indefinable area between art and science. „Arscientic“ is a composition of the terms „art“ and „science“. „Andism“ originates from the word „and“. It is the literal conjunction between art AND science, which provides their fusion. In this interspace, neihter categories nor limitations guarantee certainty and stability. A non–category defines this indefinable area.
In this video performance I refer to the transitory validity of principles, of rules. My inner voice guides me towards my 13 oughts of my romantic manifesto of the Arscientic Andism. I explore several intimate options of constructing and deconstructing it.

About Her deals with a sad and unfortunate worldwide issue: domestic violence against women. It is a silent animation movie. The images that alternate between past and present are enough to convey the message: we urgently need to talk about it. We must do it before it is too late.
