| About Annie Abrahams |

Dutch performance artist Annie Abrahams uses webcam technology to unite participants in the shared electronic third space.


In her ground-breaking networked performance The Big Kiss (2008), two performers engage in the act of “kissing” via the network. As with much of Abrahams networked performance art, she questions intimacy in the “telematic embrace,” despite locational separation.


She asks: are we “alone together” in our online, virtual relationships, or are we able to form meaningful and deeply human connections through networked interaction and performance.

Annie is known worldwide for her net art and collective writing experiments and is an internationally regarded pioneer of Internet performance art. Abrahams creates situations meant to reveal messy and sloppy sides of networked human behaviour, to trap reality and so makes that reality available for thought and critique.
