Social is an experiment  in human interaction brought to you by Coral Short and Lamathilde.  They will introduce you to total strangers and re-introduce you to old acquaintances.  This art game is about spontaneous communication: perhaps a chance to practise your language skills, make a new friend or lover.  Or perhaps the piece blatantly confronts you on your uncomfortableness of intimacy with another human.  The artists are working with the re-integration of touch as acceptable social behaviour.  Humans need to touch in order to survive in this lonely world of facebook status updates.
