Remote Encounters

On April 26, 2013

On Friday 12 April at 12.10pm UK time, Paula and Helen will gave a make-shift presentation at the Remote Encounters conference in Cardiff.

The performative presentation used the project’s purpose-built online interface to connect the symposium venue (where Paula was) and with APO33‘s Platforme Intermedia in Nantes, France (where Helen was) in real time. Fragments of performance materials were contextualised by a discussion of the co-authorship systems at play within the work. We focused particularly on the multiplicitous use of domestic space, and how this collision of public/private is used to enable new experiences of participation, collaboration and embodied experience of remote interaction that leave lingering questions around the nature and consequences of connectivity. The presentation was available to online participants to join, and included provocations for audience interaction in both the on-site and online space to demonstrate how the interactivity and live co-authorship of make-shift works.
