Chasing Synchrony


Tools for New Ways of Being

Chasing Synchrony


Tools for New Ways of Being
Building performative structures to strengthen a new feeling of collectiveness
File under

The practice is concerned with synchrony, with temporary linkages of people and bodies, examining how this functions under capitalism while creating a space free from commodification for people to relate on an internal, instinctual level.
Custom-made apparatuses and structures generate immersive environments and are dynamically engaged through collective action of drawing, speaking and performing. This setting defies the scale of quotidian life, challenges body limits and disjoints the norms that risk-averse and profit-driven commercial architecture imposes upon lifestyle norms and space standards.
The performances grow naturally as the participants lock into rhythms and patterns through intuition and improvisation. The use of amplified sound and materials with rich tactile properties aids the participants in this respect. The participant-apparatus complex loudly claims the physical space it occupies, thus making the claim political.
