'soaking' stems from the durational performance piece "soak," which was first live-streamed on 6 April 2020 in a London bathtub. Both 'soak' and 'soaking' explore ideas of isolation and stagnation, through material language, repetition, and duration. The project is a poetic response to lockdown in the UK.
