Performance, 00:13:00, MiniDV Documentation
We sit next to each other in front of computers, connected via the internet. Cameras capture and record our portraits that are projected in real time, layered on top of one another. In sequence we apply our make-up, by announcing each step beforehand. A dialogue built on intimate ritual. Contact between two subjects enabled via internet videophone. Instead of reducing the distance between the two subjects this technology in fact exacerbates this reality due to temporal distortion. We attempt to highlight this distortion through our physical proximity, playing with intimacy, distance and tension.
