Two identical systems are linked via the Internet. Each system monitors their local space using a Kinect sensor and sends a spatial representation of participants to the remote location. This representation is virtually projected into space as a structure of interactive sound possibilities. When participants in one location come into contact with the virtual body of participants in the remote space, they hear the sounds of that interaction.

The first installation of his work, then called "Body Language", dates from 1986, and was part of the seminal Strategic Arts Initiative I. "International Feel" was developed 25 years later, for Strategic Arts Initiative II.
