Conversations around a table by Gonzalo Bénard

Inspired in the Portuguese tradition of meeting people around a table and in the amazing film "Coffee and Cigarettes" by Jim Jarmusch with Iggy Pop and Tom Waits, this series started with... a conversation around a table.  

In a conversation around the table usually there's no sense of time, when you watch the clock you will find out that you're sitting there since ages without noticing:
How many times you found yourself dreaming awake while the other one is talking with you? I'm sure you already caught yourself visualizing the other as an animal, without nose, with 4 arms, acting weird and funny or simply naked when you're completly out of focus on the other's conversation. Conversations around the table are great to get lost in one's mind... to disconnect from others uninteresting chit-chat leaving your mind creating and dreaming.

And here you can just sit around the table enjoying some mute conversations.
