          Abstract

          Standing in the street market the Congolese immigrant told me the messenger mask he was selling me was supposed to establish a connection between different worlds. He repeated "before we had internet and cell phones, we had only such masks to talk to other worlds." This image of the African Mask as an intercessor between here and there was so strong and beautiful that it reminded me of the layers that link telematics to ancestral rituals to connect to the spirits and to the dead. This peculiar conversation in French between two foreigners in Berlin inspired me to create a performance associating ritual masks, video circuits and a projection screen, exploring the possibilities of becoming another through the process of communication. This article is a theoretical reflection on this ongoing practice based artistic research, bringing together Eduardo Viveiros de Castro’s Amerindian perspectivism, Vilém Flusser’s technical image and Gilbert Simondon’s concept of techno-aesthetics.
