The walkshop is focusing on the adjacent points of Prespa (Greece, Albania, Northern Macedonia) and how they exist and do not exist at the same time. It is this instantaneous and simultaneous existence and non-existence of boundaries that this practice aims to explore and highlight.
Five portable devices are placed along the borders. They simultaneously retransmit and record the audio-visual content of the landscape on the Zoom platform, in an instant montage that will be automatically created by the chosen platform format. The cameras on the mobile devices are positioned to see the opposite landscape from the one that they stand. The placement will not be far from the “line” of the border, regardless of the side which has been chosen.
With this act, at the same time one can be e.g. in Greece and present that they are e.g. in Albania. The zoom link will be available to anyone at any time. This recording will last 20 minutes.
The purpose of the simultaneous projection and recording on the zoom platform, is to blur the borders and lines between the three countries and the projection itself, and for a few minutes the landscape will be one and unclear, inconceivable to which country it belongs, within a node that is currently created using mobile devices. In addition, the use of the zoom platform functions as a sign of adaptation to the times and special conditions, but also as a hub between remote participants of the Conference and Prespa.
Finally, there will not be audiovisuals recording of the walk to the border. This decision will illustrate the creation of a new route and narrative, that of the virtual, parallel to the border and lost between the lines of landscapes . The concept of recording is limited to the choice of the creator and the participants, as way of taking control at the result.
Therefore, the recording of only the specific practice that occurs during the online meeting will emerge, which will present the reality that was created in a few moments , and records the lack of borders. The special way of recording and the option of the not recording part, could act as a video installation in a post-exhibition.
