What is presence? Nowadays, if something isn’t in social media, the existence of the thing is questionable. How does this dependency of internet and social media affect on the human interaction?

These were the main questions I was looking for an answer in my piece ”The Artist Is Present”. It is a homage to Marina Abramovic and her famous performance by the same name. The difference between these two performances by the same name lay in the slight twist in the realisation of my piece, which bounds my performance directly on our time. Instead of looking to the eyes of the person sitting in front of me, I was browsing my smart phone during the whole performance avoiding any direct contact to the physical world.
