RUTH CORTIS MAKES PLEIN-AIR B&BS TO CHALLENGE HOW TACTILITY IS VIEWED TODAY. IT IS IMPORTANT (IGNORING PANDEMIC TIMES) BECAUSE TOUCH VERY UTILITARIAN AND NOT BIG USED IN NORTH AMERICAN SOCIETY, SEEN AS AWKWARD AND IMPROPER. IMPORTANT DURING PANDEMIC TIMES BECAUSE DISTANCING HAS REVEALED JUST HOW IMPORTANT TOUCH IS FOR HUMANS (BRAINS HEALTH AND BODY HEALTH). RUTH PUTS THEIR ART OUTSIDE TO ALSO INTRODUCE SUBJECT OF WHO USES PUBLIC SPACES, WHY, AND HOW IT’S USED.
