“All bodies, not merely “human” bodies, come to matter through the world’s iterative intra-activity; its performativity. This is true not only of the surface or contours of the body but also of the body in the fullness of its physicality, including the very “atoms” of its being. Bodies are not objects with inherent boundaries and properties; they are material-discursive phenomena. “Human” bodies are not inherently different from “non-human” ones. “ quote from 'Meeting the Universe Halfway' by Karen Barad
‘Investigating through making’ is at the core of the course 'Potentiality of Sound in Matter', that is produced and guided by Channa Boon and Elena Khurtova, for all departments of the Royal Academy in The Hague.
It has lead up to a final presentation here on the Research Catalogue. The students have been investigating questions like: how does colour sound? What does my room has to say? How do intimacy and friction sound? What is the sound of darkness? How to communicate with a thinking forest?
Sources of inspiration are the New Materialist philosophy (Donna Haraway, Karen Barad, Ursula Le Guin)
