Double Bind web performances

15 December 20h30 Paris time web performance in the Double Bind series of panoplie.org.

Renee Turner presents
Postcards from my desktop

“I would like to write you so simply, so simply, so simply.” **
Jacques Derrida, “The Postcard: From Socrates to Freud and Beyond.”

Postcards from my desktop is a performance mixing RSS news feeds and simultaneous transcription.  Sending snippets of communiqués across the ether, the work plays with interpretation, point of view and the imperfections of streaming technology.
Seeing the desktop as an exotic place where the world converges through RSS, the performance explores the limits of translation, immediacy and communication.

** “I would like to write you so simply, so simply, so simply. Without having anything ever catch the eye, ecepting yourself alone, and what is more while erasing all the traits, even the most inapparent ones, the ones that mark the tone, or the belongings to a genre (the letter for example or the postcard) so that above all the language remains selfevidently secret, as if it were being invented at every step, and as if it were burning immediately, as soon as any third party would set eyes on it.”
Jacques Derrida, “The Postcard: From Socrates to Freud and Beyond.”
