Fluid States North
June 18-21, 2015
Fluid States North is a cluster in the PSi #21, Fluid States: Performances of the Unknown dispersed conference. Fluid States North will take place over 4 days in the month of June. Culminating on the longest day of the year (June 21), Fluid States North invites you to explore island life conditions and possibilities through telematic presence and sensuous experience.
Fluid States North is a communication platform that binds together places and people across the widespread area of the North Atlantic region. Considering the tensions between the global and the local, Fluid States North aims at creating nearness and connectedness despite distance and to provide frames for people to meet and exchange in new modes of communication.
Telematic connections are established every day in four days June 18-21 between three sites in the Northatlantic area: Torshavn (the Faroe Islands), Nuuk (Greenland) and Copenhagen (Denmark). Performances, presentations and other activities will take place at each locale, and some of it will be shared in the telemativ space. We test intimacy despite of distance.
