We deployed and are suggesting to deploy a variety of methods, some related to our previous experiences, some hypothetical and to be probed. For example:
Framing the Inquiry – elaborating questions that can be useful for others.
Circulation – the capacity to come and react towards what others are doing, leaving behind a trace of the reaction, and giving the element reacted on possibilities for expansion, shaping the reaction so that it can eventually return to the others.
Continuous Notation – the expedience of verbalisation methods (text production) differs largely across the individuals within a group process, so other forms of narration are mandatory. The “import” of each artist’s form of notation can reorder the group process. Also collecting and prompting material among others is an important way to construct a significant analysis.
Temporary Bridging – to come together and establish ephemeral bridges among artists. There are different scales of these rendezvous, some are mini-condensations, some more involved, creating a connection between different artefacts, e.g. exchanging data, sending pings, creating a physical contact between elements.
Distancing – traces may develop in the form of “canopy shyness”, a mutual distancing to produce gaps between the artists. It is also a common undertaking in most art media to repeatedly dissociate from the process and observe it from distance.
