Into the Folds

May 23-25 2008

But the universe is as though compressed by an active force that gives
matter a curvilinear or turbulent movement, following a non-tangential
curve to its limit.
                                   Gilles Deleuze

The Sense Lab invites you to participate in a three-day movement and
philosophy workshop led by Erin Manning.  Key contributors are Brian
Massumi, Mireille Painchaud, Sher Doruff and Nora Heilmann. The workshop
will be housed at the Society for Art and Technology in Montreal,  
and will be dedicated to an exploration of how movement folds into  
and thought into movement. A key aspect of the workshop will be the
exploration of how the movement-philosophy intersection creates  
events in
the making. To these ends, we will keep the workshop small (a total  
of 20
people). A reading package will be sent out to all participants.
Close-reading of the texts will be encouraged in an attempt to foster an
open and generous engagement with the readings. Philosophical readings
will include portions of texts by Henri Bergson, Alfred North Whitehead,
Gilles Deleuze, Jose Gil and Friedrich Nietzsche. No previous movement
experience or philosophical training is necessary. The third day of the
event will unfold into an installation-event called Folds to Infinity,
which is a process-based clothing collection designed by Erin Manning.
This event will be open to the public. Workshop participants will be
invited to become collaborators in this event.

This is a call for participation. Please let us know why you would  
like to
