Realism Lacks Presence

HaaaaaaaaaaaaCommunicating the body at a distance.  Seems to be all the rage these days.  This project R*Emote Mirror sets up a mirror in New York and another in Seoul.  A full length mirror in each site shows the outline of the remote person’s reflection.  Funny, how video images don’t seem to cut it anymore.  Realism lacks presence.  Abstract representation, or avatar subjectivity, communicates a sense of presence and individuality within the technology.
