Web Tapestry (in progress)
The distance seems greater when the sun sets in California and the light no longer allows for the videocamera to pick up the image being transmitted to New York. It is a new collapse of private and public spheres. These relationships loom between fiction, fantasy, artifice, authenticity and affect. I am seeking a material residue from eyechatting with various partners over the internet. What I am left with is images, still frames from our video conversations that break down into code. This ‘eye’ attached to the computer, shows me myself interacting.
