Accepted Paper:

Asynchronous Crisis, Corresponded Transcontinental Audio-visual Chronotope   
Pero Fukuda (Ritsumeikan Univeristy)

Paper short abstract:

This work experiments to question and multiply the notion of crisis and construct a polyphonic transcontinental audio-visual chronotope by letting Fukuda and Juan Castrillón's fieldwork footages=experiences correspond, mirror, follow, askew and shadow each other.

Paper long abstract:

The formal structure is as follows. Fukuda sends a minute or less clip to Castrillón and Castrillón will send back a clip which communicates with Fukuda's and Fukuda will send another in response and then Castrillón...... taking turns. Hence this is literally a correspondence spoken not in words but with audio and/ or visual media. In Fukuda's case, most of the material comes from rural Rwanda where he conducts fieldwork where there is no Covid-19, new normal nor internet, being it a reminder of marginalisation in the global crisis. The already polyphony of audio-visual chronotope emerging from the strong presence of time C and E-series (Nomura, 2010) in Fukuda's fieldwork experience will be amplified by Castrillón's footages=experiences in the Columbian Amazonia attesting to the plurality of global crisis.
