What is real in videochats today? What can i trust?

Here the public and the private meets! I made photographies from random people from all over the world who watched and react on Yvonne Rainers Solo „Trio A“ fromm 1966. The solo is danced in public. The video is preproduced and put into a chatroom.

The live moment of chats - and so the simple trust in a reality - is questioned. I observe how the random stranger observes the dance solo. It becomes theater in the virtual world - not a chat.

PS: All the people have to agree before they start chatroulette to be recorded.
