Presentation of “Listening as act of response-ability” at the IV Interactive Film & Media Virtual Conference organised by IFM Lab: Interactive Film and Media Research Network of the Toronto Metropolitan University.
The video presentations, research-creations, and workshops featured at the IV Interactive Film & Media Virtual Conference from June 8 to 10, 2022 are accessible in a special issue of the Interactive Film & Media Journal.
Presentation of the paper “Towards an Awareness of Interferential Reverberations” at the two-day virtual symposium Dismantling the Body: Possibilities and Limitations in Art Making on May 18–19, 2022 organized by he Graduate Students of Art History (GSAH) of the University of Washington.
The symposium aimed to bring together scholars and artists to explore the interactions between body and place, the production of bodily knowledge, the regulation of the body, and its agency.
The annual Theatre and Performance Research Association (TaPRA) conference was held online & Co-Hosted by Liverpool Hope University between 6-10 Sept 2021. Having been invited by the Working Group on ‘Bodies in Motion: Margins, Intersections, and Vulnerability’to the panel (Unwanted) Motions, and stillness against permeable entities I presented my paper “Movement as a form of knowledge – unlearning the prevalent by realising patterns of interference”. The conference provided an exciting and really rich experience and learning source.
The final project running under the working title reverberating interferences – explorations into thingness has been realised in a Covid version as a film project with shooting dates between the 23rd to 25th October 2020 Wayne McGregor studios. The material is currently to be edited.
Some material has been published throughout the process on instagram.
In November 2019 I presented at the After Agency Conference at the HAT Research Center in Poznan with an attempt to line out a re-definition of ‘agency’.
In December 2019 I tried to make sense of these ideas for the future progress of my project at your yearly CREAM Winter Symposium. This marks the frame for a decisive chapter and the next presentation in context of the project.
A slimmed down version was presented together with two dancers (Giulia Iurza and Gloria Trolla/Paola Drera) attempted to realize aspects of the original performance in different conference situations. Aiming to interlace different sources of knowledge came together in a grid visualising the positionality in space, while the amplified electromagnetic waves were disrupted by the movement of dancers as well as the audience. Intra-actively enhancing existing interference patterns aspired to undo an understanding of agency as a capacity assigned only to certain humans.
In context of the CREAM summer symposium together with David Leahry I organized a performative panel session. Collaborating on supporting each others workshop we shared the time slot to present two very different interactive interventions.
