A three-body problem is a predicament of triangulation. While triangulation is compelling as a stable structure, its form is hard to break and doesn’t suffer the myopia a two-body problem presents.
The first two bodies are collaborators, Fionn Duffy and Ashley Bedet, who reside both a continent and an ocean apart. These are the bodies they each possess (we shall call them bodies I and II) but there is also the potential third body (body III) which keeps their communications from falling apart.
Body III presents a paradox, it is the land, the ocean, the air, the geographic distance between two people and all that physically exists within the bounds of their delineation. It is also the radio waves, the data and the words that connect and counterweight the line of communication, as the artists create, sustain and explore their distance together. With a keen interest in the poetic surfeit that surfaces with a broadened approach to understanding and knowing the world, they maintain conversation about the very nature of our ways of sharing and consuming knowledge.
