Clarissa K. Ko//‘fivefeet dance’ explores ideas of comfort/discomfort and finding home. Inspired by the invented words of John Koenig from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows:

“Monachopsis- the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.”

“Exulansis- the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it.”
