The Research Catalogue (RC) is a non-commercial, collaboration and publishing platform for artistic research provided by the
Society for Artistic Research

serves also as a backbone for teaching purposes, student assessment, peer review workflows and research funding administration. It strives to be
an open space for experimentation and exchange.
Dorsal Practices - Murky Back Thinking
Emma Cocker, Katrina Brown
Dorsal Practices — Murky Back Thinking is a collaboration between choreographer Katrina Brown and writer-artist Emma Cocker, for exploring the notion of dorsality in relation to how we as moving bodies orientate to self, others, world. How does cultivation of a back-oriented awareness and attitude shape and inform our experience of being-in-the-world? The dorsal orientation foregrounds active letting go, releasing, even de-privileging, of predominant social habits of uprightness and frontality — the head-oriented, sight-oriented, forward-facing, future-leaning tendencies of a culture intent on grasping a sense of the world through naming and control. Rather than a mode of withdrawal, of turning one’s back, how might a backwards-leaning orientation support an open and receptive ethics of relation? How are experiences of listening, voicing, thinking, shaped differently through this tilt of awareness and attention towards the back?

Reconfiguring the Landscape in Greenwich
In 2022, the SOUND/IMAGE Research Group at the University of Greenwich hosted one of the Reconfiguring the Landscape international workshops. Unlike previous workshops, we decided to split the work over two periods. The first period was from the 17th to the 24th of July, and the second was from the 25th to the 27th of October. During the first period, members of the artistic team were joined by members of the SOUND/IMAGE Research Group to investigate several historic sites in Greenwich. In the second period, the artistic team performed an outdoor concert in Greenwich Market. The work was carried out in collaboration with researchers Brona Martin, Emma Margetson, and Angela McArthur.
Reconfiguring the Landscape CD
The Reconfiguring the Landscape documentation CD focused on the public space outdoor sound installations that Natasha Barrett had created during each year of the project and marking new phases in the work addressing urban noise with 3D sound.
As a final conclusion to the research project three of the five outdoor sound installations were remixed for an indoor exhibition space as a multi-part work called “Sound Worlds.” The sound exposition was installed in the Foredragsale at the Old Munch Museum in Oslo - a 21x18 meters space with a high ceiling. The exhibition was open to the public from the 24th to the 26th of October 2023.
