Physical vs. Virtual intimacy is a live performance video installation that explores the disconnect between what we are willing to share publicly in contrast with what we will say when we are separated by devices. The video on the pixel wall is a manifestation of the intimacy shared in the 1's and 0's of the cloud. It is tender, passionate, sometimes violent: the manifestation of subtext. The actors in the installation, however, are cold, distant, and detached; communicating only through phones. This is often how we are with each other in our lives, holding our emotions at distance and unwilling to be honest face to face.'
