Field note 1: Island ∼ Pond
Image: Brynjar Bandlien, 2016
Do the rhythms of islands offer a feeling of isolation or freedom?
Who and what might be attracted to a pond?
What is the ‘passage’ between island and pond?
What is the hope, happiness and trauma of the pond and sea?
Through the fieldworks we explore the dynamic and kinetic rhythms of the life of islands, record pond ecology and human pond interaction, and investigate how travel-time is used and experienced on long sea hauls. Through these dynamic, kinetic and corporeal event-driven investigations we will make links between contexts and communication. We will do this to make material actual experiences, self reflections, locative mapping, and participant views. Above all, we will strive to provide wider and fruitful expression of ways to connect movement as a design material and a means of exchange between a variety of actors (persons, groups, tools and systems).
