Contemporary Sync stages synchronized actions using personal gadgets like cell phones in public spaces. It looks at the spectrum of new gestures that entered our daily repertoire of body movements in the past decade because of the use of those gadgets. This is a choreography of new forms of social synchronized body gestures of contemporary cultures that take place both consciously and subconsciously. Like with earlier projects that dealt with synchronized rituals I look at patterns, aesthetic traditions and formalities common to collective rituals and ceremonies done by communities such as the kibbutz movement, where I grew up.
