Distant FeelingS #8 – 2020 iteration.

At least 30 people participated in this yearly online ritual. In the video you can see only 25 of them. Sorry to those who thought to be able to watch themselves in the group of blind silent sentient people and can’t. Next we will do better.

Reactions:
Helen Varley Jamieson: very nice to be a part of it again :) – it seemed to be a lot noisier than previous times. someone was yawning a lot! :D & other restlessness … maybe it’s a sign of the difficult year everyone has had.
Heitor Alvelos: Thanks for this, the perfect way to welcome the Winter Solstice.
Alan Sondheim: this was wonderful and meaningful, and I had one odd reaction, the sounds reminded me of all the news stories about the hospitals here in the U.S. and abroad, about the ICU, intensive care units, many of the sounds were similar to me, and there was an odd air of both life and tragedy outside the meditation, an odd air of sadness.
i wonder if anyone has looked into the old work on ESP in relation to this…all the research done years ago on Extra-Sensory-Perception, people communicating through minds only. a lot of the research was discredited, but there’s some indication there might be something to it. (Annie: paranormale communicatie?)
Ienke Kastelein: With so many people participating it becomes more about the shared expanding (open) space and less about the relation.

Distant Feeling(s) #8
Sunday Dec. 20 18h CET.
Duration 15 min.
Online. Open to all.
Eyes closed. No talking.
(please use headphones and have sound and video on)

In a year such as 2020 continuing to activate the yearly reconnection of Distant Feelings, through zoom, seems natural, pertinent and more than ever an act of resilience to deal with the lack, the disconnection and the complexity of the worldlessness* the ‘world’ was precipitated into.  
The invitation is open all interested to enter this space, into a silent, yet sentient, relational encounter

A telematic embrace where nothing seems to happen and where the lack of action is precisely its potential for fighting alienation. We are performing absentia within the network, while the network is functioning.
We research togetherness through the Internet as a way to counter its fallacy which drives the (im)possibility of collective strength. Can we find novelty in an already established system, and act from within, towards (an)other purpose(s).

Distant Feelings is a project run by Annie Abrahams and Daniel Pinheiro.

Corona Corona Corona

Deux/two extracts of un poème multiligue

Other d’autres text(e)s by me on sur Internetexploreur

I used Midst, a software made by Annelyse Gelman to produce this text.
We hold no particular aesthetic allegiance, but we believe that poetry is a process, a way of thinking in language, engaging with language, attending to language. Poems are events. Poems are for everyone.

Video essay – Why is the use of videoconferencing so exhausting? – in JER

Why is the use of videoconferencing so exhausting? An analysis on the demands.
Video essay by ANNIE ABRAHAMS and DANIEL PINHEIRO.

Traduction en français :
Pourquoi l’utilisation de la visioconférence est-elle si épuisante? Une analyse.
l’intimité est gênante
l’intimité est gênante
AUCUN APERÇU AUCUN APERÇU AUCUN
APERÇU AUCUN APERÇU AUCUN APERÇU
AUCUN APERÇU AUCUN APERÇU
PAS DE VUE D’ENSEMBLE
vous devez scanner l’écran en continu
interruption(s)
impossible de détecter des détails subtils
pas de détail
l’imagination remplace les signes secondaires de la communication et ceux-ci doivent être traités sur leur utilité
nous sommes enclins à vérifier notre propre image tout le temps comme si nous avions besoin d’une assurance continue que la connexion existe toujours
tout le son est mélangé dans un environnement sonore mono,
cela conduit à une compression de l’espace partagé,
nous devons deviner d’où vient le son
distraction(s)
toi, je et moi
une situation triangulaire dans laquelle nous nous sentons et nous regardons nous-mêmes et les autres …
c’est psychologiquement exigeant: notre cerveau doit traiter le soi comme corps et comme image
interruption(s)
vous ne voyez les visages de près que lorsque vous êtes bébé dans un berceau ou avec un amoureux au lit
vous ne voyez les visages de près que lorsque vous êtes bébé dans un berceau ou avec un amoureux au lit
il y a du délai
nous ne sommes jamais exactement dans le même temps / espace
Tout cela contribue à un épuisement.
Nous essayons de dépasser les limites des environnements artificiels sans prendre en compte ses spécificités.
Que se passe-t-il si nous supprimons les sens que nous utilisons le plus pour communiquer?
Et si nous fermons les yeux et ne parlons pas.
Qu’est-ce qui reste?

Distant Movements at NODE

Do you want to join us to examine what it means to «dance together» in an environment where bodies are entangled with machines?

Join us Oct 8 16h CEST for a 20 min long Distant Movements session in the frame of the Choreographic Coding Lab Online meetup organised by Naoto Hiéda for NODE20.

8/10 16h – 16h20 Paris time

Distant Movements @NODE projected in Naxos Greenhouse

Online. Open to all.

You will be guided into movement by Daniel Pinheiro, Muriel Piqué and Annie Abrahams.
We will priviledge:
an inner gaze / body awareness
slowness, in order to favor the perception of the experience
awareness of the presence of others, even if you don’t see them – the session will be recorded – an eye (the webcam) looks at you all and unites you in the interface.

You can’t do anything wrong

screencapture of the session

We will start with an activation of the body through “balancing” with the eyes open – we will close our eyes …

During the last 10 minutes only qualitative incentives:
don’t forget to breathe
your toes move too
remember flexibility
