CARE INDEX RESEARCH WORKSHOP #01
Organised by Supernormal
30 January 2021
As part of the exhibition Networked Bodies and the Care Index project, a working group of artists and cultural practitioners have been gathered to collectively reflect upon the meaning of care in the current global socio-political climate, considering care’s complexities and our shared interdependence. The group will respond and experiment with the current public submissions to the on-going Care Index, engaging in the possibilities of sharing, exchanging and communicating gestures of care with others.
The live stream will showcase a new sound work by collaborating artist Marcel Zaes featuring voices and sounds from the workshop participants.
Marcel Zaes (*Bern, Switzerland), is an artist and artistic researcher. Currently, he is pursuing his Ph.D. in Music & Multimedia Composition at Brown University (USA). Marcel investigates mechanical time with an interdisciplinary framework. His creative practice in sound consists of assemblages of self-made software code that acts as mechanical timekeepers and humans who they play with, thereby creating an affective potential to re-think the gap between what is conceived of as «human» versus «mechanical» temporality.
