Inaugurating the Wind Egg Affiliated Society
ARIA Research Seminar
20/12/2018 van 14:00 tot 20:30
This ARIA symposium is presented in the context of Haseeb Ahmed’s PhD project, “The Wind Egg.” This project sits at the intersection of art and science, particularly fluid dynamics. It entailed collaborations between practitioners in a variety of fields and this conference inaugurates the Wind Egg Affiliated Society (WEAS) to formalize these collaborations as a foundation for future productions.
We will address phenomena of wind and fluidity in terms of both their metaphorical capacities as articulated in modern and ancient literature, political ideology, and philosophy and as expressed in physics, finance, aeronautics, and fluid dynamics. Together we will ask, How can observations of fluid phenomena articulate their aesthetic and narrative capacities, to render metaphors that are fortified by their basis in reality? Which existing language do we appropriate to compose the basis for transdisciplinary collaboration and what do we invent? When does language intrude into visual phenomenon and how can this intrusion be considered as a performance process?
Please register before December 19 on the ARIA website.
