Distant FeelingS #3 | VisionS in the Nunnery - Oct5-Dec18 2016 (Thursday, November 24th - 6h30pm (GMT))
For this 3rd online encounter between the three artists, Distant Feeling(s) - curated by Tessa Garland and Cinzia Cremona for the programme at the Nunnery Gallery (London, UK) - the main question remains:
"How does it feel to share an interface with eyes closed and no talking?"
Following the rules: 15min + eyes closed + not talking > how to try and ‘feel’ each other.
A moment of digital mindfulness, a moment to experience the relational tissue that networked environments (expanded to several layers of our common daily routines) provide. By using an interface that relies on senses activated by audio and video in order to establish communication we take a moment to explore the possibilities beyond using those same senses, this time by opening the possibility for others to join.
Annie Abrahams (FR), Lisa Parra (US), Daniel Pinheiro (PT) + participants at the Nunnery Gallery in London + online participants.
"The piece presented by Annie Abrahams (Distant Feeling(s) #1) continues the research of an artist who challenges the relational utopias attributed to the internet by creating performances which reveal empty yet precious moments, and the banality of interpersonal relations. The performance links Abrahams to two other artists (Daniel Pinheiro & Lisa Parra); from three different locations the three seek to communicate sensations and emotions.

The remote participants were able to participate in an online meeting using zoom.us
Distant Feeling(s) is a collaboration between Annie Abrahams with Lisa Parra and Daniel Pinheiro within the context of LAND PROJECT.
