BRB

BRB (be right back) is an observation of spaces on online webcam platforms, where the absenceof sex is the focus of the work. The images show us empty rooms, a reflection of what is notthere. In text we follow several online community chats, users talking amongst other usersduring the absence of the performers. The screen recordings are made when the webcamperformers are gone, mostly just before they come back. The viewer is left to wonder whoinhabits these spaces and what happend in the moments before, with only some clues left toimagine. The chats that occur when the performers are gone sometimes create funny situations,where others have a darker context.
