Betwixt is a place that requires two separate points of reference to be created. These points can be people or objects. When they are put together, a kind of axis is built. Separate points on the map are quickly joined with a thread that is invisible to the eye. This line can tighten and relax in a controlled way depending on how close or far they are from each other. The bodies that clash with one another create tension – the relationship space. In between, everything becomes blurry. It's hard to tell which is one and which is the other. Together, they create an open room that everyone has access to. Its space shrinks or expands depending on how many guests stay in it. We can find many similar networks of this kind around us. Together, they all create an ongoing project of a house where everyone has a corner of their own. The stories of individual rooms mesh and overlap on top of each other. They create a ground for us to walk on. Each of us become coordinates, points of reference on a map that measures this abstract space. The distance from her to her is the same as from me to you. From guests, we turn to hosts. The moment we change our role is instant. The length of this second changes depending on the time we become aware of what the betwixt is.
