Actively not Arriving: A Durational Atmospheric Intervention

SenseLab

We propose the creation of a singular foyer for encounter and thinking-feeling in a collaborative, open-source environment. Concretely, we plan to install a space for ongoing modulation between art and philosophy/thinking. Located in a transient area of the conference, the space will processually tend intensities as they modulate in the intervals of the event, offering specific techniques and mate...
