LAND is a collaboration of two distinct artists living in separate continents, Lisa Parra (New York, USA) and Daniel Pinheiro (Porto, Portugal). The project investigates concepts of physical versus virtual space, and how we embody time and presence via the internet for creating a “relationship”.

Since 2008, Vânia Rovisco, has been working within the spaces of art galleries with the purpose or researching the position of the body in time and space.
Sem Título de Animalidade evokes an archaic presence, with a sign of resistance as a root for the work. An installation that arises by extension during the debate of Martine Bedin and that for that reason invites to the opening of spirits, willing to be subject to extraordinary conditions, that normally wouldn’t happen due to the diversity of its forms.
Action of artistic telepresence will be held between three centers of Arts and New Technologies: Medialab-Prado (Madrid), Arteleku (Donostia) and Matrabal (Montreal), that will result in a collective and teleshared work between the artists located in the centers and will allow the interaction of the audience. It is a multidisciplinary work, developed in the context of an interactive installation, that proposes a telematic trip through cyberspace, with sensored and robotic elements, and the creation of visuals, sounds, music and performance.
