The weSANK research team calls for participants to the fifth collaborative session of the weSANK project, which will be organized at Daegu Art Factory, as a pre-conference workshop, on 30th of June 1st and 2nd of July 2018.
The weSANK research project emerged from director-researcher Vincent Roumagnac’s dialogue with architect-researcher Emmanuelle Chiappone-Piriou on the encounter of scenic thinking and proto-architecture. Together they have designed and implemented a two-year experimental project on "prototypes of the stage of the future". Via four collaborative sessions, in Tokyo, Paris, Helsinki and Barcelona, the project convenors, together with artists and architects invited locally, initiated the performative design and production, and the critical discussion, of those prototypes. From general themes – including big data and post-industrial landscapes, dystopian narratives and daily rituals, networks, climate, memory, energy and affect – the spontaneous conceptualization and manufacture of prototypes sought to explore techno-sensitive and geographical conditions and, within them, the seizing and coalescing physical and informational objects, within a scenic/performative dimension.
For PSi24, Roumagnac and Chiappone-Piriou propose to add a fifth collaborative session to the project. After taking place in Daegu Art Factory, in the company of guests-participants, during three days before the conference, the session will be then shared with PSi participants in the form of a permanent installation of the outcome of the session. A twenty-minutes presentation in a panel is also scheduled, to disclose the whole project, at the same time addressing the situated specificity of the Korean session.
In order to apply for partaking in the collaborative session, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with few words of introduction and motivation.
No need to be present full three days (nevertheless a minimum of 3 hours of participation is kindly requested).
