Keynote: How To Exit a Reality: Cosmologies of Space, Attention and Spectatorship, Fontys – TILBURG

We will give an introduction into our artistic practice led research that investigates the co-constitutive relationship between attention and space: how – through altering their logic - a new ‘imaginal’ space might appear in their overlap. It works towards developing a cosmology of attention and modes of spectatorship – an experience of an expanded range and quality of perception and attention - practiced through artistic work as an interface with the world.

Working through ‘differentiated attention’, ‘weaving spaces’ and ‘mapping dreams’, the research explores the overlaps of spatiotemporal logic in dreams, gameplay and cosmology in site-responsive collaborations with architectural structures and their given systems and their spectatorship apparatus. It seeks to blur the edges between the stage and the world to consider the co-constructedness of the theatre and the world as imaginal spaces.

The performative show-and-tell research presentation will include excerpts from the performance How To Exit a Reality (Attempt 1 of 19) and from the colour and light installation Civil Twilight.
