More/Less Than a Cyber­fes­sion: A few the­o­ret­i­cal short-(cir)cu(i)ts from Learn to hear through the lies of your eyes

Miljana Peric

Abstract: Basic con­cep­tual struc­ture of the crit­i­cal tex­tual cyber­for­mance is orga­nized around notions of the cyber-net-confessions as:
(1) an artist state­ment about her work in the form-of– or sound-like “con­fes­sion”,
(2) per­for­mance itself as the­atri­cal­is­ing of a con­fes­sion act, and
(3) ques­tions around issue of con-versation (ie. chat) between per­form­ers (derived from the pro­posed for­mula of UpStage e-quality: cyberaudience+cyberplayers=cyberformers), which can be viewed, prob­lema­tized and dis­cussed as ele­ment of self-expressive and con-fessional cre­ative processes.
