collaboration w/ Adrienne Foster

three hour performance, projection of delayed video feed

An experiment in communicative distance and physical intimacy. Adrienne and I sat skin to skin for three hours, in physical contact but never looking at each other directly. Instead, we saw a delayed projection of the other's face, so we were constantly out of sync with each other. Additionally, the cameras were positioned below the projection, so that if we looked at the other's face it appeared as though we were looking away.
