The Long Meeting was developed between 2001 and 2003.
The meeting points were located during a two-year trip around the world
and additional travels. Places were selected at random, following a
certain geographic distribution. They are mostly easily accessible and
ordinary places, away from urban agitation.
Geographic coordinates are latitude and longitude in the World Geodesic
System, WGS-84, which is widely used throughout the world. Locations
require a GPS receiver or at least a detailed map for each spot. Accuracy
is up to a few meters, yards or feet.
The succession of places in time and the meeting dates have been determined
by drawing lots. Dates and hours are given in local time.
The small pictures associated with meetings are now souvenirs taken
from or around the meeting places at the time of location. They're just
vignettes giving some visual indications about the type of place. They
also create a perspective through space, a meeting opening on the following
meeting, which opens on the following one, etc
