Domestic objects and sentimental tokens reworked to manufacture queer melodramas of digital correspondences, exchanges and ceremonies in the distance.

La pieza colaborativa de Torre Alain & Rasheed Mirza es un encuentro amoroso en la distancia. Une y otro van disponiendo desde sus casas recuerdos sentimentales, posesiones y símbolos del otrx, obsequios para lx otrx (una joya, unas velas y un zumo, un ángel, un arnés). Se intercambian por email sus postales románticas y así van construyéndose su propia lengua material, su propio código de cortejo, íntimo y melodramático, hecho de objetos corrientes bañados en luz triste .

Torre Alain & Rasheed Mirza's collaborative piece is a loving encounter in the distance. One and another are arranging sentimental memories, possessions and symbols of the other from their houses, gifts for the other (a jewel, some candles and a juice, an angel, a harness). Their romantic postcards are exchanged by email and in this way they build their own material language, their own courtship code, intimate and melodramatic, made of ordinary objects bathed in sad light.
