Skin took inspiration from the strange sensation I would get when someone would accidentally touch me this past year. The pandemic has changed the way we relate to one another. The opportunity to kiss or hug a friend is rare these days and Oh boy! I am a hugger. We have lost a bond, a level of connection.
