Today I assisted to an Ensadlab seminar entitled Temporalités (Temporalities) here in Paris. The intention of coordinator Lucile Haute triggered me: the afternoon was meant to experience research projects directly, as opposed to “just talking about them.” With Field Essays, I too try to show a process in a direct way, offering a generous experience.
Performances somehow always trigger some kind of uneasiness in me. As if I don’t know where to position myself. The audience of today was clearly an audience of “habitués” – they seemed to undergo everything quite calmly. “Matière à deux temps” was a very nice, semi-improvised, semi-scripted conversation between a mathematician and an artist / researcher, in which concepts of geometry of time-space were approached in a low-fi, hands-on manner. Perhaps the most enjoyable part was that they were clearly enjoying themselves!
