[Yasmin_announcements] Video : A fragmented relation / Collective writing project : Madness / Folie

*A fragmented relation* Original French title : *Relation entrecoupée *
2009, 15 min. Subtitles in English.

*A webcam mediated conversation treated to reveal the significance of void
in regular human intercourse.*

Images and sound: Annie Abrahams <> and Nicolas
Editing : Annie Abrahams, residency Artelinea - Art

*Two images, two voices answer each other, search for the other, get lost.
During machine mediated communication, is the other most present when
nothing happens, when at least I think of him, her, this other? **

This video is a special version for the internet, an adaption of the two
channel installation version showed for the first time at PPCM in
6 to 15 Mars 2009. This installation was also presented the 10th of
Mars 2009 at ERBA, Valence during a workshop with the students.
