In this live multimedia performance two rooms are presented to the audience, “The Safe” and “The Connected”. The audience is invited to share their thoughts in the chat and create relationships between the text and the two bodies performing for the camera. Inspired by the prosthetics and body extensions from the German artist Rebecca Horn, new forms of internet connectivities propose a reflection on isolation and the relationship between affection and the fear of touch.In this live set you see these bodies extending, communicating, networking and translating relationships through technology.This questioning of what a body extension would look like in the post internet era is shown as the anxiety of always being and leads to thinking about what the next “touch” will be.
