Abstract

Postcards explores augmented conversations across time, place, technology and people. The source material is a collection of long-distant conversations between several people immutably bound together. The central texts are between George Sands and Gustave Flaubert taken from their prolific correspondences from 1866 – 1876; these are augmented by other, more personal, texts between Anne and her husband David, and between Anne and the composer. The images and texts of these ‘Postcards’ are held in a computer environment that works in real-time with the performer to co-create a conversation between the here and now of the live performance, the live processing of the sound, and the embedded stories that are held in the media materials. The overall result is anchored in the present, linking time, place and people in an augmented, magnified, expanded, illuminating story of the now
