Blur the lines between intimate and public spaces with Andersmith & Heidi Boisvert as they guide you through collaborative art-making with strangers… all from the comfort of your chair, couch, or bathtub.

Playing in the space between physical and virtual mediation, you will embark on the absurdity of social choreography in human interaction. Together, you gather to rethread the social fabric: devise new gesture vocabularies, bring along physical and emotional keepsakes and connect to the sonic texture of the human voice.

While attempts to reenter the public space are happening in fits and starts, many collective rituals are absent, and our individual identities remain atomized. Let us co-create shared survival mechanisms through everyday gestures to build collective effervescence.

But in our attempts at effervescence, let us not forget that the camera captures all.
