(Workshop) 04/07 2016
@ UdK garden
Deborah Ligorio and Stefan Heidenreich
Throughout the centuries, from Aristotle to Copernicus, Galilei to Kepler, right up until to today’s astronomers’ photographic mapping, the universe continuously expands. At the same time our view is constantly redefined with the increasing availability of ever-higher resolution lenses. It is a “denatured vision”, writes Joseph Vogl.
This workhop consists of two parts: It starts with a 20 minutes long CosmoMeditation guided by artist Deborah Ligorio, using breathing and imagination techniques to follow rhythms, routines and rotations of bodily orbits and planetary flows through a focus on the apparatuses that measure them.
The meditation will be followed by a pop-up observatory session. Writer and media theorist Stefan Heidenreich will give an introduction into heavenly matters, including human and nonhuman satellites, with friendly support from ’Heavens Above’ .
Please bring a blanket.
