The Telematic Embrace

This micro-project thrives on our ability to synthesise first and second space elements to construct by collaboration in a metaphysical third space. Through our desktop screens, we see a cohesive image of choreographed ideas. We are synchronising our actions in reality to interact with each other in the third space.

These scenes were screenshot during an interactive adobe connect session.

Our perception of reality through these spaces are thwarted. It is almost as if we are tangibly together in this stitched reality with no sense of realistic angle other than the one we had staged to frame our subject.

We also played with our ability to displace the visual reality by distorting matter through translucent objects.

 With proper choreography and collaborative effort, we are able to create complex motifs such as the ‘X’ in this photo.

Holding up objects of similar colours allows our visuals to react to each other and form a harmonious net of split screens. This synchrony shows that we are interacting with each other and each other’s visuals, and subsequently constructing a third space of our creative effort within the span of a screen.
