Some of you may remember the first iteration of The Ambassadors at SOHO20 Gallery's +/- Project Space in 2016. This year I've expanded the project into a series of three videos exploring the unarticulated communications within three separate face to face interactions.
Each video will occupy the landing page of INTERNET ART BOOK FAIR for the last two weeks of each summer month.
Find the full collection on the project page.
About The Ambassadors:
We send out a multitude of subconscious ambassadors when we face another person.
In three parts,The Ambassadors tries, with text, to represent each ambassador within a series of face to face interactions - layered and partial; concurrent and scrolling. Each video is a different interaction with its own interpersonal assumptions, confusions and revelations. Flowing, they may moisten your lips now, but your mind a bit later. Give these texts as little or as much attention as you can, and whatever is important will stick.
Our innate inability to maintain consciousness of all that is communicated in a given moment shall not be conquered despite our multitasking brain expansion training, neuro-linguistic programming, attempts at simultaneous output/input (how many tabs do you have open right now?). We are not -- no, nowhere near -- in control, but we can try our best to sense all that passes between two bodies.
