Introduction:

This work is about places.

 

Internet:

 

Lately, mainly two places are often discussed. One is definitely the digitalized place by the name of the “Internet”. The Internet is the place where you can instantly be connected with the transnational platform. Where you can communicate with someone, even in a hostile country. The Internet is often spoken of in connection with Globalization and is surely the leading figure of it.

 

Locals:

 

Another place would be “local” places. Those local places have their own contexts and structures of societies, cultures and weathers.  

 

 

Connecting the local places with internet live streaming

 

 - over parallel exoticism 

 

By using an internet live streaming service, I connected two different places that have different contexts in different countries, into one art piece as per the structure shown on figure 1 and 2 below.
