|Intimate Klüver is a
film on telematic textures and intimate wearables, created for a diptych
screen projection in a dark gallery. The film portrays movement observed
close-up and transformed digitally to render certain representations of
intimacy and sensuous experience in the wearer as well as in the
perception of fabrics worn.
The audience is invited to come into a dark room where two image
projections (with stereo sound) appear side by side, evoking the
networked studio environment in which we create the transmission of
digital information and interactions between performers in a local site
connected with performers in distant sites (USA, Japan, Brazil). The
questions raised by the two streams (films) address the paradoxical
combination of seductive “private” garments and virtual partnering,
intimacy and distant reception.
