This film documents the four day performance which took place at FACT from December 10th - December 13th 2015 for Follow.
We’re more connected than ever before. Able to interact with friends, public figures and even foes over the internet each day, what impact is this having on how we understand our relationships with those around us, and the ways our emotional cores are configured? #TOUCHMYSOUL asks us how we can truly connect with another person across the networks, what this feels like, and how we can be moved by such an encounter.
The collective’s performance attempts to bring those connections into focus, and capture what happens in a lasting, indelible way.
The performance is part of #TOUCHMYSOUL, a project by LaBeouf, Ronkko & Turner commissioned for Follow. While the performance has finished, visitors to FACT have the opportunity to listen back to a selection of the phone calls which took place between the artists and those who called in from all over the world, alongside other ephemera from the performance, until Febraury 21st 2016.
