*These materials are convenient but not necessary for this practice:
Beamer, video-camera, wall or surface to project on, HDMI for connecting the beamer to the video-camera, small light, a homogeneous and neutral background of A3 size (it can be a wall, paper, table), a pen and a paper.
If you have access to those materials: place the camera in front of the homogeneous and neutral background. Light the space between the camera and the background with a small light. Then connect the beamer to the camera and project the live image onto the wall/projection surface.
If you do not have access to those materials, make sure you find a tool to enlarge the image of an object or material. It can be, for example, magnifying glasses, or you can discover another method. Also, have with you a pen and a paper.
1. Let an object or piece of material, no larger than your hand closed, trigger your attention. Take it and keep it with you until you perform the rest of the exercise.
2. Place the object/piece of material in between camera and background in the ideal situation or in a place that is visible from different perspectives in your exercise space.
3. Observe the properties of that material through the enlarged imaged of the projection or the magnifying glasses.
Then move in relation to that material, without thinking about what kind of relationship is it. Then observe again. Reiterate observation and action as many
times as wanted.
4. Try to guess the relationship between your movement and the projected image. Are you imitating the properties of the material? Are you becoming that material in another way? Are you complementing the material? Are you moving in contrast to the material?
5. Move again while this question "hovers" over your body. Let the body dive in. Let the question be there while the body only attends its necessities and affinities.
6. Try to write on the paper a sentence that describes the underlying meaning of your action. It might be helpful to do it as the TITLE of your intervention.
