Workshops in Gaza and London

Over two weeks, 22 artists participated in our workshops running at both locations simultaneously. Via a two-way internet link and real-time video processing, we appeared to occupy a common space: At times we were next to each other, at times we were superimposed; forming new, composite 'characters'. We found ourselves in a virtual space, imaginary yet tangible, merging reality and escapism. We improvised and shared stories about ourselves, our habits and objects, our homes, our neighborhoods and societies. By exploring our respective domestic space, we immersed ourselves in each other's world.
