playing around the sharp line that divides sensuality and sense -

three users are simultaneously connected through the same virtual space. they create and position attractors in space and connect them to clusters of meanings. these memory phantoms - autonomous audio-visual-textual objects - behave in response to the user's participation and behaviour.



memory phantoms flicker between the sensuality of their visuals and the sense of their textual associations. one-sided approach creates non sense: viewing triggers their growth up to a visual overflow, reading to a textual excess -

the balance in between the two extremes remains poetic.
