Concept model 3 - private and public

One of my early findings, a wasps nest, finally found its place. With its delicate walls it represents the apparent transparency or availability that I look for at the bath, or the skinship. The web that embraces the nest represents the contact with the city, how it is a closed entity, but it is also linked to the city.

In Japan and South Korea, the term "skinship" (Japanese: sukinshippu (スキンシップ?); Korean: 스킨십) is used to describe the intimacy, or closeness, between a mother and a child. Today, the word is generally used for bonding through physical contact, such as holding hands, hugging, or parents washing their child at a bath. (wikipedia)

Skinship n. Feelings of relatedness and affection between two people, particularly a mother and a child, caused by hugging, touching, and other forms of physical contact. (wordspy)

Further, the theory that physical intimacy leads to emotional intimacy.
