The workshop “Postit-ing Dornbirn_Disrupting Invisible Barriers,” which will be facilitated by the game designer Philipp J. Ehmann (play:vienna) aims at developing methods of playfully transgressing the boundaries between public and private, visible and invisible, presence and absence. Parallelly, an interactive and continuously growing installation “Body Hi/story(ies)” by Salon Flux explores the imaginaries of places, psychogeographies of spaces, and spatial transformations through body movement.
The way we, as humans, participate in the vibrational fields and flows of energy of the Planet Earth is embodied practice, even if the process often remains somewhat mysterious, unnoticed or unacknowledged. This workshop will explore how a human vocalization, which is nothing else than amplified and conscious breathing, can become a practice of inquiry into the planetary water cycle.
