We’ve just returned after an amazing week together with Quim Bigas at L’animal a L’esquena in Spain. A second initial working period of WOWOWOW – a collaboration with and around collectivity. The following are some WOrds and WOrlds from the WOrk …
Collective as a place where outcome is based on negotiation, conflict, listening and misunderstandings. Sense of value as a mode where movement comes from.
A mode of thinking through action – as an ongoing feeding between the modes (action/thinking >< action-thinking >< thinking-action) – allowing us to include an ongoing documentation/tracing of the research, while we work. What format(s) could be appropriate?
Conversation as a mode of thinking out loud, sharing your statements in the now, as a mode of creating source for movement… Conversation as a going around together, circling and wondering on certain topics, being in the not knowing and on the impossibility of agreements, being in a constant becoming, a constant reflection….Constant construction. The sharing of unknowing.
What if collective is a set of images that appear and disappear, of statements that are ephemeral, of a radical mode of being in a structure through the lenses of being present and in relation…?
The body of WOWOWOW has multiple eyes, ears and mouths. We can be shape shifters.
Big thanks to the L’animal crew for having us – such a special place!
Now – VACATION MODE!
Take care out there
