I am currently working in Vienna with Nikolaus Gansterer and Mariella Greil on the project Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line. Our Method Lab II focuses on the sharing of practice and working methods around the notation of notion and the materiality of language. Throughout July and August, we (the key researchers) have been working closely with our invited ‘sputniks’ (Alex Arteaga, Christine de Smedt and Lilia Mestre) and critical guests (Werner Moebius and Joerg Piringer) towards the development of Radical Scores of Attention - an experimental working process combining three interrelated modes of practice: (A) Practices of attention; (B) Live artistic exploration; (C) Practices of conversation. On Monday 10 August we host a public event for testing an experimental score system which brings these three different modes of practice into relation. Specifically, we propose to test the way in which practices of attention and conversation impact upon artistic exploration, as a means for sharpening, focusing or redirecting one’s attention.
