What is the relationship between queer culture, language, and the internet? In Long Distance, Christos Pantieras creates “a visual measurement” of a two-week email correspondence from a past relationship, taking virtual interactions beyond the intangible spaces of the internet. The emails are impressed onto wax-coated paper and bound together to form an undulating scroll that unspools from the typewriter. Based in Ottawa, Pantieras’ installation work often uses language from emails, text messages, hook up platforms, and social media as a starting point to unpack how relationships, communication, intimacy, and identity are navigated online.
