In Between

Observation in philosophical terms is the process of filtering sensory information through the thought process. Input is received via hearing, sight, smell, taste, or touch and then analyzed through either rational or irrational thought. What happens if the observed object knows that he/she is being observed and the observation also changes positions so that the observer is being observed by the object? As artists we can play with these roles and also with the purpose of our observations which in contrast to the science can have a more open and indistinct objective and perhaps use different methods.

“In Between” is artistic platform that travel to cities for 15 day each; on a three-year period time project (2014/2017) in the European territory. We are working with different communities, local artists and cultural organizations in order to create a wider scene of the relationship between citizens and neighbourhoods, creating situations to increase communication in communities and between them. We would like to listen and share personal and communal stories through memories and exploring every day’s life to re-create social memory together and to understand what is important to people. Also, learning new ways of using, sharing and looking at public space. We try to transform public into collaborator and to transform public space into potential creative site.

For that purpose we use different artistic strategies and forms: site specific installations, video, photography, sound installations, performance, interviews, posters, texts, drawings and most of all – dialogue. The specific extension of the project is our web site, or digital platform, which allow us to present not just material which is collected during that 15 days of our physical presence in some neighbourhood but also to present the materials sent by our collaborators from places that we left or even from those places that we even didn’t visited yet.
