By holistically entering into the research process through the concept of Intra-activity, Karen Barad dissolves the dichotomy of researcher and subject of research, be the subject material or animated. “Agency is the enactment of iterative changes to particular practices through the dynamics of intra-activity. Agency is about the possibilities and accountability entailed in reconfiguring material-discursive apparatuses of bodily production." (Barad 2003)
From Barad's intra-action in the laboratory we draw the concept of intra-viewing in the design studio. Not working about, but working through-one-another is what we hope to mobilize for artistic and scientific research.
