Forming resonant situations: engaging the interval in performance and installation practices

posted on 16.09.2022, 00:16 authored by BENJAMIN JAMES WOODS

'Forming resonant situations' explores forces and conceptualisations underpinning sculptural forming practices through performance and installation. To rethink a conventional habit of privileging form over matter, my research develops processes of forming, framed through the operations of the interval, that produce resonant situations between the forces revealed by my practice. Through a careful exploration of moments where form is imposed on material and bodily dynamism, this research develops an adaptable ecology of practices—comprising touch, breath and listening—which makes possible patterns of sensing and comprehending differences in habits of response and cognition revealed by the production of resonant situations
