ACTING THINGS VII – School of Fluid Measures Arles
Learning should be less about knowing or memorising what something is than understanding how it continuously changes in relation to something else. At the School of Flu,a Measures objects, numbers and values that have become fixed by universal standards are dissolved through scored interactions that leave traces in coloured sand. The patterns that emerge are an exploratory measure of the fluidity of meanings, and the colours represent exemplary values as resources to debate, distribute, and fuse into new colours and values. Through an embodied process that surfaces situative intentions and relations, the Installation invite participants to negotiate new colours and values. Viewed as a series, the sessions intend to explore ways of mediating, materializing and notating the making of meanings and results, in a manner that embraces the fluidity of the constant socio-material becoming. The first activation of the School of Fluid Measures in Istanbul observed the repertoire of gestures, expressions and patterns that emerged throughout the different negotiations. Building upon these learnings, the second activation in Aries focuses on how the understanding of a specific value is influenced and changes throughout a silent negotiation process.
