Toward a Kinoderm Aesthetic
|+ Add opportunity|
What if one's gait could see?
Take Dziga Vertov’s concept of kino-eye and vision it anew in the age of gait-based detection and surveillance: the skin-as-camera. Think with others on questions of performance, politics and pedagogy as mobile subjects in the contemporary vision machine.
"Toward a Kinoderm Aesthetics" might be of interest to academics, artists, activists or others working with questions of moving bodies, visioning technologies, public spaces and politics in the common sphere. We encourage a variety of educational backgrounds, professional practices and personal experiences to enliven and enrich the weekend event.
The Department of Biological Flow seeks to develop any particular process to a state in which it has just ceased to be fragile enough for one's imagination to take over and build upon or otherwise transduce the framework. The "Toward a Kinoderm Aesthetics" workshop is a continuation of our attempt to offer a broader process cluster -- WALKING IS IN(DI)VISIBLE -- as a means to engage imaginative dialogue and open questions in a collaborative potential.
