A Question of Distance

Trangmar, Susan (2003) A Question of Distance. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Trangmar, Susan

This multi-media work explores questions of intersubjective identification and belonging in a region of conflict. Building upon recorded conversations with diverse inhabitants of Israel/Palestine conducted in parallel with the making of landscape photographs, the work proposes a role for the ‘listening stranger’.

A live performative reading event with slide projection moves between first and second person subject positions, putting into question the identity of who is speaking and the place from which they speak. A key theme of this work is the composition of the research material into a variety of media, responding to the different cultural, linguistic and architectural contexts of reception of the work.
