SUPPORTED BY NEXT WAVE

This work in progress endeavours to reveal the imbrication of human and machine expressions and rhythms, the sensation between skin and sound, proximity and distance. It aims to express the thickness and amplification of sensorial encounters through electromagnetic listening, and movement—bringing attention to a space in between—an INTERWORLD. 

We draw on new materialist and queer theories, specifically those of Elizabeth Freeman, Sarah Ahmed, Stacy Alaimo and Astrida Neimanis, to inform our relationship to ‘the temporal frame of thick time—a transcorporeal stretching between present, future, and past’ (Neimanis and Lowen Walker), in order to interpret the space between our bodies, our digital devices and each other.
