Radical Reconnaissance: Creative Practice & Interdisciplinarity

This workshop uses Donna Haraway’s idea of ‘staying with the trouble’ as a meme for an hour of collaborative play between disciplines. How do practices of vision resonate with a somatic sensibility? What does sound look like? How might we choreograph architecture? And what do objects sing? Bring your best socks and your disciplinary baggage to tangle ideas and possibility.
