We will try to incorporate and be inspired by the following ideas of Sense Lab in Concordia University in Montreal, led by Prof. Erin Manning
Movements of Thought considers ways of moving and thinking through embodied experience, and of thought itself as a mobile interplay across disciplines. What is a moving thought? How may it open bodies to modes of lived abstraction, becoming more-or-less human, comprising images, material entities, and affective compositions? What techniques may be drawn from diverse practices in physical movement, and how may these be assembled in discussion with scholars and practitioners from other fields? Working alongside Knots of Thought, this assembly of thinking-together invites participants to consider what may be at stake for performing an ecology of practices in the movements of thought.
Knots of Thought is a mode of working-thinking between disciplines that pushes us to make perceptible the captures, blockages, intercessions and interruptions in our academic and artistic projects. The invitation is to participate in a round table to share these knots, not necessarily to unknot them, but to explore collectively how a knot gives texture to a project. How is a capture an opening? Might we say that all thought unfolds from knots? What is a knot of thought? What strategies have we taken to tighten or unravel these? How do we work from them, cut into them, and open out new ideas from their densities, into new intensities? In tandem with Movements of Thought, this series invites participants to explore the strange performances of the knots of thought.
