INTRODUCTION

For three years, while we lived in different parts of the country, we conducted part of our relationship in cyberspace. We created "The Turk & The Jew" website to identify a virtual space to have a relationship. This book is based on this site and extends the idea of our virtual relationship using the form of the artists' book. We respond to each other on family, religion, nationality, distance and intimacy. We speak to our presence, and our lack of presence, here in our first collaborative publication.
