Selection of Work: Paul Sermon’s Telematic Dreaming

Telematic Dreaming is a telecollaboration piece done by Paul Sermon in 1992

The video image of the audience lying on a bed is captured by a camera and processed. This is then projected onto another bed, where another audience interacts with the image and is sent back to the first bed. Telematic dreaming bridges the third space by inviting users into an intimate setting of the bed. The video projection allows the viewer to be intimately alive despite being in two remote sites.
