The Transference Project : FAITH JOHNSON

The Transference Project
In Collaboration with Leighton Collier Roux

Since June of 2010 both artists have committed to meeting each other psychically by designating a time and then focusing their intention on becoming close to one another as if they were occupying the same room despite the reality of being on opposite sides of the country in two different time zones. They have evidence of successfully connecting with one another through shared emotions, somatic sensations, and flashes of color, memory, and visual images of the other recorded through journals kept by both and then reviewed and confirmed at a later time over the phone.

When performed live one artist is usually present with the gallery audience while the other artist performs remotely. After the psychic meeting has concluded, the remote artist calls in and opens up the performance for the audience's comments and questions.

Through this project it is our hope to open up other senses of communing that may be dormant within us. Through our actions of transference we also hope to bring further understanding to ideas of presence, absence, and extensions of self. Most importantly we wish to create possibilities for deeper human connections with each other and the world around us.

Performed live at:
Mobius, Boston, MA 2012
University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK 2011
Scope Art Fair, New York, NY 2010
