The context for this international workshop, the fifth Artaud Forum held at Brunel University, is the collaborative European project “Metabody” which works to redefine bodies in media, performance and design. Over the past few years, ‘Metabody’ has developed new architectures and immersive environments which behave like living organisms that have an auditory, visual, and tactile sensory quality, with subtly changing states and affordances, they can be worn and breathed, felt and imagined, transported and taken off.

We invite participants to join us and work with these concepts of integrative tactile experience, kinetic atmospheres, multiperspectival space, and unconscious perception.

‘Metabody’ counteracts dominant technologies and their prevalent tendency to negate differences by reducing bodies and movements to prescribed forms in current surveillance culture. ‘Metabody’ emphasizes openness, and indeterminacy of embodied expressions as a key factor for a sustainable society. This project also foregrounds the need for a new politics. The workshop & performance laboratory probes troubling interpretations of the increasing unrestrainment of capital, and capitalism’s impact on all social-economic, cultural, creative, and educational sectors in a shared developed world now expanded by massive migration and refugee movement. The sustainability of democracy is an urgent theme for all those in the performing arts/creative fields becoming intensely aware of the multiplication of realities (virtualization; networked infrastructures, diasporas) and the tightening of our bodies into technological environments. This is a call for peripheral perception in existential experience.

yes, we shall try to film the symposium and upload it, and also excerpts from the public performances. They will go to the special DAP-Lab playlist of Research Seminars and workshops that Marlon and I created on youtube.

Humans exploring hybrid art, dance, embodiment, cognition, tech-science, networks, post-humanism and culture.

welcome to UNSTABLELANDSCAPE

WE LIVE WITHIN AN UNSTABLE LANDSCAPE

This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.

We are in a transitional phase and refocusing the network with a broader interdisciplinary framework. It will reflect a contemporary  community interacting and embedded  unstablelandscape.

This network is maintained and administrated by Marlon Barrios Solano as an independent art/curatorial/social innovation project.
