Extended Bodies, Operationalizing Theory: A Guided Practice

This is a performative guided thinking/experiencing exercise that goes through ideas of space, connection, accountability, bodies, materiality and ways of spatializing and thinking. This can be listened to and/or read alone or in groups. It was designed as a way of entering collective or group conversations and practices.

Accompanying the audio file of the recorded version is the annotated transcript, which points to some references that this exercise draws in, on, from and with.

You can choose to listen or read or both. I invite you to make yourself comfortable, in whatever way that means for you — sitting with eyes closed, taking a walk, or whatever feels alright. Feel free to pause, stop, return.
