We appropriated the spirit of experimentation which usually is consigned to scientific laboratories. Merging art and anthropology to open up to the emergent, we simulated physical continuity between Guatemala and New York through two screens and a symmetrical replication of artifacts in both locations, creating real yet imagined space. The encounter and coexistence of people that never met before were at the heart of this exercise. Without any script or rehearsals, the participants shared a meal, conversations, and affects, each of them assuming his or her role in the collective determination to cultivate, repair, and maintain this fragile mutual network during more than four hours.
