Exposition

A Diary on Slowness at Örö Fortress Island (2021)

Francisco Beltrame Trento

About this exposition

This exposition emerges from the field notes diary of the researcher during their stay in the Ores residency program at Örö Fortress Island. Örö, previously a military fortress, dates from the Russian Empire era and it was closed to visitation until 2015. The piece focuses on the temporalities enacted outside the city, in connection with more-than-human materialities, and, in contrast, discusses the neurotypical constraints of academic spaces. I criticise the (lack of) approach to neurodiversity in educational settings, and the temporalities implied in the required tasks in such settings, even when the subject is physically distant from the academic space. There is a growing interest in Slow scholarship (Ulmer, 2017; 2018). At Örö, I proposed experiments in video, photography and writing, by thinking with slowness in ontological terms. In this diary, slowness is approached conceptually and anecdotally, in a humorous autoethnographic fashion. The residence period coincided with the initial quarantine to neutralise the coronavirus pandemic, which resonated with the text, always existing in between a personal narrative and a conceptual discussion. The exposition features a photographic essay and several video clips.
