Parallel Ports (2004)

www.parallelports.org is a site specific project by the artists Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum. The website hosts a dialogue in video, between two people, in two different places. Point of departure is their physical separation from each other, juxtaposed against more general issues of displacement and long distance communication. The first two locations that are connected by the site are Puerto Rico and Rotterdam. During a period of two weeks, they have been uploading on a daily basis short, low-resolution videos to the website, in reaction to what has already been uploaded by the other person. At the same time, www.parallelports.org has been presented "physically" at the PR ’04 biennial in Puerto Rico and in TENT. Center for visual art in Rotterdam.
