Apologies for the delayed response Annie.

I've participated in a couple of these performances as a "listener" and to
watch closed-eyed listeners is very interesting - highlighting the mutual
or otherwise interior experiences of the physically distant collaborators.

I am always amazed at how quickly it became so normal to communicate
globally in the way we have since net. No wonder we are in such trouble -
we humans expect to just be able to handle this huge shift in sociality
without trouble or glitch.

The script of the spoken part gives some indication of the divergence of
reflections of participants.
I did have mixed feelings about hearing Marc's and my voices noisy over the
top of this image... but for the funny reason of feeling that it was a
transgression of the pact between other participants.

I particularly like this series of works. Thanks for inviting us to
participate in this special version and for sharing it here.
