WELCOME TO PERFORMATIVE STORYWORLDS 30% SEMINAR

This research project aims to explore the dynamic process and interplay between the worldbuilding and worldings in my practice. Between an inner fantasy universe that I embed & immerse myself in through daydreaming, and my responses to everyday encounters in the university organization, research community, artistic collaborations and environmental activism etc.
The aim is to break with a reality that I live in and that shapes me, a reality I don't agree with and refuse to accept, by replacing it with an alternative, hypothetical reality.

DISCLAIMERS


This is a work log in order to get an overview of my work process for this seminar.
Little effort on graphic design and layout has been done in this exposition.
The texts are not finished, so far they are quick translations of notes.
This is not a full account for all actions and writings in this process, but a few examples.
The narrative thread in this project started in 2011, therefore I also included activities from before I started my phd studies, in order to make it more clear.

The references and methods listed here are a few of years old. They were my points of reference going into the project. My next step is to update it in relation to how my work has delveloped since then.
