Janelas Afetivas: frameworks for absences

Janelas Afetivas: frameworks for absences

the sensation of emptiness in everyday life, in routines, in excesses, in the repetition of confinement, and in the endless losses. This audiovisual performance is performed live using the OBS free stream software, used to make the live mixing of a virtual chat carried out by the jitsi meet free software. The proposal of the actions of the participants is developed by the theme of each meeting of the series Janelas Afetivas (Affective Windows).

With each new screen opened in the browser, in its pages, in the various functions delegated to the software, we face the emergency of delimiting actions and time, which converge in framings that mean everything and, sometimes, nothing.

The choices of the fragments of a previous experience to this current condition, generates the potentialization of the traces of an existence, transforms the online meeting, exposed to the world, into a new experimentation of the meaning of each one’s emptiness.

A meeting in the present between open memories, which manifest themselves in details, in simple gestures, so as not to forget to remember a presence.
