The Stroker refers to the nickname Takala received during her two week intervention at Second Home, a trendy co-working space in East London. She went around lightly touching people as part of a cutting-edge well-being programme. The nuances of movements and looks demonstrate how people negotiate 'acceptable behaviour' in the workspace.
