March, 4 2016.
Daniel Pinheiro in Porto, Annie Abrahams in Montpellier and Lisa Parra in New York  tried to experience the others presence online with eyes closed and no talking.

Meeting Lisa and Daniel.
Yes we met. In space. Where? In my body maybe?
I was trying to much. Maybe. Why did I look more up than down? Was there, where we were, more up in the sky than here down? I was imagining I might be able to provoke an action, a telematic coordination of movement. It didn’t happen. Slowly I went from the outside to the inside. I was with them on the floor of Lisa’s dance studio. I could feel them. Bullshit of course. There was nothing to say when we opened our eyes.
I would like to do it again, I would like to see what would happen a second time.
Was Lisa crying near the end?”
Annie Abrahams

“I did cry.
I too was imaging myself lying on the floor. it was an inner journey of images, desires, dreams, feelings of sadness and happiness
it was special, it was a special moment in time.” – Lisa Parra

“It made me think of meeting strangers inside an elevator that gets stucked. Where my mind traveled many places trying to understand where was I in relation to these other two persons. Were they there still?! The urge to open my eyes was suddenly erased by the warmth of the sun in my face… here… and back to them … there.
it constantly made me feel that I was there because they were also there, suddenly instead of facing them it was about these three silent bodies “looking” at something else.
the intimate space of silence is awkward. the absence of time and space is endless and infinite”
 – Daniel Pinheiro
