Skype Heartbreak Show

interactive installation exploring the decay of a long-distance, romantic relationship through the filters of unreliable technology

During the performance, the audience witnesses the development of the couple’s relationship, as mediated by the technologies through which the characters communicate. The storyline is dynamic, changing according to the movement of the audience within the performance space. Members of the audience are both spectators and actors in this digital love story.

Skype Heartbreak Show was installed and exhibited to the public at The Chimney during July-August 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.
