A stroll through fluorescent woods

I will give an online workshop @ Bandwi/d/th: The Togethering Lab’s Online Relational Festival.

The Togethering Lab goes cyber for our week-long, international festival of online relational experiments! Join us for a series of workshops which explore ways of being together through digital communication technologies. How might dispersed networks perform intimacy? How does the digital carry our bodies? How far can we imaginatively extend these platforms? What new modes of togetherness can be created there? How is our experience of materiality - the screen, our lover, the subway platform - altered, mediated, (un)done?  Each workshop is, at its heart, an experiment - beginning with a question in mind (or series of questions), which is then investigated using a toolkit of diverse relational practices (philosophical, theoretical, therapeutic, textual, artistic, embodied, meditative). Participants will have the opportunity to fill in lab sheets after each experiment to further pry open  investigations and document our findings.
