A silent, yet sentient, relational encounter, materialized as a telematic embrace where nothing seems to happen and where the lack of apparent action has transformed into the transposition of the concept of agency and a potential way for fighting alienation. …

Distant Feeling(s) highlights in its genesis and continuity the need to feel/sense presence and suggests a pragmatic approach for reshaping a consciousness on kinship resorting to available technological tools which have been transforming its meaning.

We describe the genesis and history of this performance series where in an online interface, that normally is used for videoconferencing we spend time together eyes closed and not talking.

* Founded in 2007, Video Vortex is a lively network of artists, activists, coders, curators, critics, and researchers linked by the exchange of ideas, materials, and discussions both online and offline. The first Video Vortex reader came out in 2008, followed by a second in 2011. This third anthology covers the turbulent period from Video Vortex #7 (2013) in Yogyakarta, across the meetings that followed in Zagreb, Lüneburg, Istanbul, Kochi, and finally Malta in 2019.
