About this exposition

This research exposition aims at ‘scoring an aesthetic encounter’ with the multimodal — visual, textual, sonic, performative — findings from the artistic research project Choreo-graphic Figures. Choreo-graphic Figures stages a beyond-disciplinary encounter between the lines of choreography, drawing and writing, for exploring those forms of knowing-thinking-feeling produced in the slippage and deviation when different modes of practice enter into dialogue, overlap and collide. We model the exposition on the experimental score system developed within our research project, approached as a ‘research tool’ for testing how different ‘practices’ (of Attention, Notation, Conversation, Wit(h)nessing) can be activated for sharpening, focusing or redirecting attention towards the event of figuring (those small yet transformative energies, emergences and experiential shifts within artistic process that are often hard to discern but which ultimately steer the evolving action) and the emergence of figures (the point at which ‘something happening’ [figuring] coalesces into recognisable form). We ask: Can we create a digital archive capable of reflecting the durational and relational aspects of the research process, the energies and intensities of collaborative live exploration? Beyond the limitations of the static two-dimensional page, how can an enhanced digital format enable a non-linear, rhizomatic encounter with artistic research, where findings are activated and navigated, interacted or even played with as a choreo-graphic event? There are two routes through the exposition: The reader is invited to ‘dive in’ by navigating their own route through the research exposition through using the score (→ Play the Score), with the → Find Out More section operating with a contextualising function.
