a thread of pauses (2021) still from video

a thread of pauses (2021) is a provocation. Interrupting etiquette of bureaucratic email exchange and explores questions of digital intimacies. Poetic in its construction, this interactive work is conducted over email where a message and video is received via auto-responder. An invitation is made to enter a dialogue by replying to the email. 

Interested in subverting and disrupting expectations of pervasive digital communications by creating a space to expand upon notions of listening, connection and relations. Listening as an act of intimacy and digital touch within these often reductive processes of communication where they operate within a fast, cacophonic environment of late-capitalist western living. What can we un/learn about listening within this disembodied space? What are the discontents of digital touch? Where does the information within an email reside materially, and physically, in real life?.
