The project ‘Pleasant one is a conversation’ will try to determine the aspect of machine mediated communication. This is a common reality of day to day life – it seems almost as if people are temporally traveling passing by time. Their fractured, desperate or indifferent, successful or irrelevant attempts to communicate, to be together, to be integrated, to love – in shared presence, but also shared absence.
