The workshop artistic research frames : [everyday] proposes the transfer of practice across disciplines, contamination and diffusion of applied knowledge. Participants are invited to experiment with hybridizing own and other approaches, methods and practices.

The workshop is taught in collaboration and highlights the participation in unfamiliar fields of practices. It aims at creating hybrid cartographies which are inscribed both in the body and into visual media. These maps will be transformed into scores for choreography.

Choreography is understood - in the broadest sense - as expanded practice through which to write/score movement of any potential matter. The research was and is being developed alongside several topics and questions: What are the traces our bodies leave? What kind of information do these traces produce? Can those traces be visualized and what does this ‘visualization‘ stand for? Can they be materialized kinesthetically using a synesthetic approach? What degree of plasticity can they have? Can sound be visualized? Does our hand while drawing go out from what is considered to be a physical space – sheet of paper and expand into different, mental or conceptual types of spaces? What does a space that we look at stand for? Is it a metaphor for something absent? Is it a container? Does space function as a container in which signs and symbols are being placed?
