A man and a woman continue to discuss without understanding the other. Each
uses his/her own invented language. The words on hope, left on the site by
the visitors, confront the images on war found on the web.

Un homme et une femme se parlent chacun dans sa propre langue inventee. Ils
continuent leur discours sans se comprendre. Les paroles personnelles des
internautes sur l'espoir se frottent aux images de la guerre collectees sur
le web.

* Title: Separation/Separation
Artist: Annie Abrahams in collaboration with
"'Separation' is a reflective and insightful web work that exhorts us, as
fellow digital 'users', to recognise our state of cyborgian seizure as we
sit at our screens. The artist's dialogue with her personal computer is a
frustrated cry for the liberation of her own tired body from the autism of
the machine, locked into its own unrelenting processes. Her halting
soliloquy is interspersed with instructions for physical excercise. Through
a deliberately obstructive and controlling mode of interactivity and a
contrary and playful humour, the work offers a strictly administered
programme of eastern style physical therapy for our nerves, muscles and
spirits. This work works." -
