PROJECT Presence in Absence
Nowadays, the sphere of human communication, for the most part, is transferred to the digital environment. Technologies provide a scene for an interaction and seemingly eliminate the distance between people. Especially with the help of face-to-face technologies it is easy to be trapped in the illusion of permanent presence. However, within the digital scene behavior and experience are limited by the mediating technology. Delays, lags, distortions become integral components of a digital dialogue. It changes drastically the quality of relationships and influences an emotional state of interlocutors. Just because you can contact each other more easy through time and space, it does not mean that there is no barrier between you and the other.
