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.

This is wonderful and it oddly came in my feed in relation to JSTOR's carrying an article with images from Nadir of the Paris Catacombs. The differences are enormous of course but there's a kind of meditative silence in both, a kind of 'uncanny smoothness' that inhabits them. The video work is so amazing, meditative, calming, spacing.
Thanks, Alan
