Hold is an art project exploring how we perform small gestures of intimacy and care. This video documents time Invisible Flock spent with the Dementia Peer Support Group in Leeds, mapping walks taken in pairs and using the data collected to build bespoke music boxes, gifted as a record of each couple's shared experience. The work looks to explore abstractions of a shared moment in time, of physical proximity and love in the face of a disease.
