We — Emma Cocker, Nikolaus Gansterer, Mariella Greil — developed this exposition for 'scoring an aesthetic encounter' with the multimodal (visual, textual, sonic, performative) findings from the artistic research project Choreo-graphic Figures. Our aim is not to present an exhaustive account of the project; rather, we seek to test the specificity of this online context for extending our investigation through the questions: How can we create a digital archive capable of reflecting the durational and relational aspects of the research process, a mode of online dissemination that enacts something of the liveness or vitality — the energies and intensities — within collaborative live exploration? 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? We model the exposition on an experimental score system developed within our project 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). Within this exposition, our research can be encountered experientially through → Playing the Score, whilst the → Find Out More section contains contextual framing alongside conceptual-theoretical reflection on the function of our score and its ecology of practices and figures.
