Minimal Action

| October 2, 2011

In the spirit of this blog—of attending to things in their birthing pains rather than as polished certainties—here’s a video study, in preparation for a series of projects in the works on using minimalist performance as a way of researching our embodied engagements with the cities we inhabit. The working question was how we can take up the kinds of micro-actions that reflect the thresholds of a place. What does it take to slide in under our usual thresholds of perception, but also what are the limit experiences that we experience everyday in our navigations? (The Situationists would have said, the “psycho-geography”—often made explicit only when one gives oneself over to wandering.)
