Why is the use of videoconferencing so exhausting? An analysis on the demands.

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?

How do we make sense of the resultant cacophony of our networked actions as they independently traverse the channels of our collective media space?

13 Different approaches united in one interface, where you can choose what / who to watch, listen to, where you are the mixer.

who

Who are my partners in this experiment? What does it mean to them to collectively conceive, to collaborate, to participate? What happens when you are aggregated? Can facebook also be a social space? Who are those facebookfriends I am streaming for? Do they also have agency? (how when, where) Who are my co-broadcasters? Are we doing something together? How will the local relate to the global? Can I reach someone? What will become of attention? Can I resist the flux, the stream, the spectacle, the show …

W3 are the #NeWWWorlDisorder – are we?

Who are you?  – Let’s not forget this is an experiment and an experience.
Art is not an end in itself.

call

Nobody called. It was a quite lonely endeavour. I ended up watching a lot of Curts stream, singing along with it and playing with Daniel and Lisa (without them knowing it). Nevertheless the archive was fantastic – great to have seen all these different approaches. Here is my broadcast:

Stranger Collaborations – London Art Fair.

18 – 22 January 2017,
London Art Fair, the Art Projects Screening Room,
Stranger Collaborations.
Curation Pryle Behrman.

Artists in the show:
Annie Abrahams (Angry Women Take 2), Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion (Glitter), Ruth Catlow (Time Is Speeding Up), Liz Sterry (Drinking Alone) and Michael Szpakowski (Shit Happens in Vegas).

Stranger Collaborations is an exhibition featuring artworks that in some way wouldn’t have been possible without the collaborations formed via the internet, showing how strangers can, sometimes even unknowingly, create an artistic partnership online.

unspecified-8-768x576
Liz Sterry, ‘Drinking Alone with the Internet, Star Wars Edition, Take 1’.

The artworks of Annie Abrahams and Liz Sterry create temporary communities that are ‘safe spaces’ in which socially-proscribed behaviours – such as public anger or private alcohol consumption – are accepted and even embraced. Mark Westall, short interview of Pryle Behrman in Fadmagazine.

besides, compressed … video, script


(©Dina Lucia Weiss)

“We falsely equate the audience with the public instead of always viewing it as separate from the public, as something by means of which we temporarily leave the public outside and rehearse new adventures in how to be together through being separated.”

The first phrase of the performance besides, compressed by communication (On Object Agency), that Martina Ruhsam and I did last Saturday online and Im Flieger* in Vienna, was a citation from Bojana Kunst’s book Artist at Work. The last phrase was a variation on Hito Steyerl’s How Not to be Seen: A Fucking Didactic Educational .MOV File.

Here is the video of the screen recording (35 min) :

The complete text / script where we based the performance on and the logfile of the online chat are available from bram.org/besides

“We perform experimenting thinking together using words and things and the affects transferred via our voices. We experiment performing thinking together, We think performing experiments together, We experiment thinking performance, We experiment performing thought together using words and things and the affects transferred via our voices…” Extract from “besides, what are we doing ?” Notes on the performance series, 03 2016.
