This exhibition looks at the idea of a group of people sitting around a table conversing over a bottle of wine.
The conversation and wine flows; jokes, political debate, friendly gossip and general cultural discussion.

This activity is looked at through the geography and language of a long-distance relationship, mapping the distance between each individual.
The conversing gets scattered and a sort of disconnect, miscommunication is created.

The jokes do not read as well through email or text. The political debates, gossip and banter begin to get out of hand.
