A reariting of extracts from Yves Citton’s “The Ecology of Attention”.
Anarchives (Notes, video, images)

“The third characteristic phenomenon of joint attention situations is therefore to be found in the IMPROVISATION PRACTICES that they necessarily call for: showing yourself to be attentive to the attention of the other requires learning to get out of pre-programmed routines, so you can open yourself to the risks (and techniques) of improvisation. Everyone knows how to improvise, because everyone has learned to participate in a conversation – where no one knows in advance what their interlocutors are going to say.”
Extract from The Ecology of Attention, Yves Citton, 2017 ISBN: 978-1-509-50373-5

Stof / Poussière / Dust

“stof” Nederlands with translation

Suzon Fuks made a video for “stof” the text I wrote for her “BE LIKE BODY—OBSOLETE #4” project. She asked 6 artists writers to responded to the questions:
How do we advance technology without giving up our sense of humanity?
What does it mean to become / be obsolete?

I am very happy to contribute to this beautiful interesting project with 5 other writers from very different cultural backgrounds and languages: Amaranta Osorio, Nasim Khosravi, Parvathy Baul, Ya-Ling Peng and Younghee Park. Their videos can be found here https://vimeo.com/suzon

For this project Suzon does a performance and made an e-book and audio track. The performance will happen on Sunday 27 June 2021, and will be followed by the artist talk with all six writers.
You have to book for the performance and talk onlinefestival.themagdalenaproject.org/be-like-body-obsolete-1

Distant Movements at NODE

Do you want to join us to examine what it means to «dance together» in an environment where bodies are entangled with machines?

Join us Oct 8 16h CEST for a 20 min long Distant Movements session in the frame of the Choreographic Coding Lab Online meetup organised by Naoto Hiéda for NODE20.

8/10 16h – 16h20 Paris time

Distant Movements @NODE projected in Naxos Greenhouse

Online. Open to all.

You will be guided into movement by Daniel Pinheiro, Muriel Piqué and Annie Abrahams.
We will priviledge:
an inner gaze / body awareness
slowness, in order to favor the perception of the experience
awareness of the presence of others, even if you don’t see them – the session will be recorded – an eye (the webcam) looks at you all and unites you in the interface.

You can’t do anything wrong

screencapture of the session

We will start with an activation of the body through “balancing” with the eyes open – we will close our eyes …

During the last 10 minutes only qualitative incentives:
don’t forget to breathe
your toes move too
remember flexibility

Open Publishing Fest – reariting

On Wednesday Mai 27th 21h Paris time (CEST) the group Constallationss* proposes a Reariting** session during the Open Publishing Fest***  (OPF May 18-29)
The session will last 90 min and takes a text related to the book Thought in the Act by Erin Manning and Brian Massumi as its starting point.

If you want to rearite with us on the 27th, please write to Annie bram.org@gmail.com or Alix alixdesaubliaux@gmail.com to reserve your place.
Info : https://constallationss.hotglue.me/?OPF

reariting a method to think together

The session will start with a 10 min long explanation and attunement on zoom.
Then the participants will go to a collective writing pad where they will find a link to the selected text that they start reading individually. On the pad they write their notes, reflexions, questions, digressions – the ones through the others – and react to those of the others.
After one hour of reariting we will shortly reconnect in zoom to discuss the process.

this is not about producing a text together, but about using reariting as a technique to think through a text together.

*Constallationss is an online art / research group started in 2018 by Annie Abrahams, Alix Desaubliaux and Pascale Barret. In 2020 Alice Lenay, Carin Klonowski and Gwendoline Samidoust joined. The group uses the internet, challenges and surprises as tools for what Annie called contemporary net art, Pascale a non-binary inclusive laboratory, and Alix performative and collaborative explorations. Their methodology: constallations.hotglue.me/?methodologie

**Reariting manifests itself as a facilitator for a diffractive, distributed intelligence on-the-fly, creating text and relational patterns that do not depend on canons. It generates creative and unexpected “outcomes”. These are, in my opinion, not so much the texts produced, as the “diffractive moments” experienced by the reariters.

***Open Publishing Fest is a decentralized public event that brings together communities supporting open source software, open content, and open publishing models. Held over two weeks in May, Open Publishing Fest will feature discussions, demos, and performances that showcase our paths toward a more open world.

Ensuite, les participant.e.s se rendront sur un framapad où ells trouveront un lien vers le texte, qu’ells commencent à lire individuellement.
