A friend told me that fluff is basically the touch and I very much like this idea, though it is a bit cheesy. It’s equally the material as well as the space in between, which makes it kind of hard to grasp both metaphorically as well as literally.
FLUFF is a weave of passing movements, looking for the in- between and not quite yet. An entanglement of intimate gestures that tie a dance together through slowness and strategies of camouflage. Forms appear and are emptied out again, a bit like becoming one’s own sculpture park. FLUFF is constantly shifting and time is stretched out until it gets holes.
