Distant Feeling(s) #4, fourth session in a series of online webcam meetings trying to experience each other’s presence eyes closed and no talking.

Distant Feeling(s) #4, the first of a livelong yearly reconnection. An ever-changing re-enactment of our intra-action with machines.

Distant Feeling(s) is a project by Lisa Parra, New York, USA, Daniel Pinheiro, Porto, Portugal and Annie Abrahams, Montpellier, France.

The project was “born” in 2015 out of an invitation to Annie to be part of Lisa and Daniel’s work Placelessness – the result of an artistic residency in Guimarães (Portugal) of their LAND PROJECT – in an encounter where both Annie and Lisa shared a blind, silent moment together while connecting from remote locations; this ‘encounter’ gave place to a format of its own – one where the artists would meet and purposely, during a set period of time, repeat the experiment.

In 2016 we organised three different séances, each one providing insight into the specificities of the context where by silently not seeing, only hearing our surroundings and the machines working to keep the connection, a temporal space was created allowing for contemplation upon togetherness while being separated. The co-presence of machines and humans – a temporal phenomenon interpreted differently by all.

The memories of this state of being together created for Daniel, Lisa and Annie, who live far away from each other, a longing to experience it again, and again.
