In each video one can see the face of a person captured with a thermal camera that allows the visualization of the thermal patterns on the surface of the skin, being able to detect the heat emitted by the body and transform the infrared radiation invisible to the human eye in a visible image. Calar reveals the energy in the form of heat emitted by the bodies, the changes in skin temperature occurs through the touch of the other, which becomes noticeable when drawing with cold or heat in the body of the partner.
