When we pose questions in person, allowing ideas to pass between us as bodies inhabiting a shared physical space, do we arrive at different understandings than when questions are conveyed at a distance online? Do we gain different insights? Are we led in entirely new directions? In this 3-day gathering around artistic propositions, creative research and deep listening, live-ness replaces the mediated online world as our discursive and imaginative space. Presented in assembly, symposium, performance and moving image modes, the creative patterns set in train over the previous four SPECTRAvision episodes will be newly weaved, cast aside or apprehended as we work towards a better set of questions. The intention is to expose, explore and amplify the dynamics of the current epoch and to use our resources collectively and vividly to consider our respective places and possible futures. Curated by David Pledger with Alex Kelly, Nina Sellars, Tony Briggs, Zena Cumpston, produced by Madeleine Collie.
