This 'exposition' is very much a work-in-progress/working process which I will be developing over the next year or so. Initiated in 2009, Re — is an ongoing collaboration between Rachel Lois Clapham and Emma Cocker that presses on two writing practices to explore the process, product and performance of text. Re — takes its name from the event of ‘regarding’, ‘concerning’ or ‘being in reference to’. It also refers to repetition, the prefix re — indicating an action repeated again or again and again; a backward turn or return to a previous condition. Re — carries with it the idea of going back to the original, but also a sense of undoing. We conceptualize Re — as a framework or structure within which we come together in an attempt to articulate the endeavour of practice, the making of work. We are interested in how the dialogic process of making and thinking might be recorded or archived; and in turn how that archive might be reactivated, re-presented.
