LEAN BACK PASS FORWARD- WITH EMMA BERRY

BUS PROJECTS OCTOBER 2019

Distance and closeness intersect, reaching an empathetic juncture between individuals and technology. Send a poem, notice a moment, hold it, pass it back and forth. Working with shared documents and email exchanges, we open a dialogue of understanding and knowledge, prioritising kinship and poetics. Warming, tenderising and evolving these virtual structures, we touch through The Cloud and moor ourselves through this exchange, through this intangible closeness. All the while algorithms quietly listen in, learning alongside. Zoom in, collect a pause and preserve it, reply before we sleep, pass it back and forth.
