About this exposition

en
In this liquid text/sound, the act of recording breastfeeding is explored in terms of artistic research as machinic liminality and embodied listening. In line with Felix Guattari’s notion of a machine as a prerequisite of technology, the highly intimate recording of neonatal nutrition is explored as an artistic inquiry, which is dependent on the interconnecting processes of the machinic assemblage (the coupling of a baby and a breast). Listening to breastfeeding through the headphones with a microphone touching the skin, produces a particular technology of recording that is noisy in its radical exclusion of other sounds, temporalities and spaces, as well as in its endless counter-oscillation and intrusiveness. The theoretical rhizomes of the article draw from the work of Luce Irigaray, Felix Guattari and Jean-Luc Nancy. The qualities of recording the breastfeeding are analysed through visceral parameters based on touch, embodied listening, and recording as a corporeal-political activity.

Tarkastelen tässä teksti-ääni-virrassa imetyksen äänittämistä taiteellisen tutkimuksen, koneisen liminaalisuuden ja ruumiillisen kuuntelemisen konteksteissa. Felix Guattarin huomioon koneiden ja teknologioiden suhteista perustaen ymmärrän intiimin vastasyntyneen imetyksen äänitysaktin eräänlaisena taiteellisena tutkimusmatkana, joka rakentuu riippuvuussuhteessa imetyksen keskeisen koneisen kokoonpanon (vauva-rinta) kanssa. Imetyksen kuunteleminen mikrofoni-iholla kuulokkeihin kytkeytyneenä tuottaa erityistä hälyisää (imeytyvää, tunkeilevaa, vastaankoskettavaa ja aika-tila-akselia uudelleenjäsentävää) äänittämisen teknologiaa. Artikkelin teoreettinen rihmasto polveilee väljästi Luce Irigarayn, Felix Guattarin ja Jean-Luc Nancyn tekstien liepeillä. Imetysäänitysten ominaisuuksia tarkastellaan sisäelinkokemuksellisten parametrien, kuten kosketuksen, iho-kuuntelemisen ja ruumispoliittisen äänittämisen kautta.
