TRYDAY: READING (AS) BODIES (TAO G. VRHOVEC SAMBOLEC)
Reading (as) Bodies is a spatial intervention, responsive sound installation, and performative setting emphasizing the notion of written text as a graphic territory and the act of reading as a bodily movement. Using tracing technology and digital sound synthesis, the installation accommodates a situation where visitors bodily inhabit the graphic representation and sonic manifestation of written text simultaneously through the processes of magnification, movement, and slowing down. This situation disrupts the practice of reading and unsettles the established relations between body, text, voice, movement, space, and hearing, setting the ground for an interpretative community of bodies to emerge.
Reading (as) Bodies is part of the artistic research project Reading Reading (2017–). For the presentation at V2_ Sambolec invited Amsterdam-based ensemble MAZE to inhabit and explore the installation as a performative setting.”
