Open call: Academy for Rhythmorphology (ARm) # 1

[DEADLINE: 10 January 2022]

Rhythm makes form. The tidal rhythms create time for rest and movements. Between the 10th and 17th of June, 2022, we will follow the flows and ebbs of the tide at the shores of Gáŋgaviika/Gamvik in Sápmi/ Northern Norway. We will study the rhythms of the tide and the forms they create through sensing, recording, measuring, storytelling and ritualizing.
Pulled by the moon the tidal wave (ca. 12 hrs 25 min) is the prime driving force behind the tidal rhythms. Tuning into the tide is to attune our clock oriented bodies with the rhythms of the moon on the Arctic polar day. Scaling the tidal pull down to the tidal pool offers an opportunity to observe and think through sensorial, spatial and semiotic entanglements. This workshop will be conducted as a shared exploration with introductions, responses and individual research time. To be able to recognize the different forces and voices in the tide, as a starting point, we will identify and name them.
Who can apply?
Artists (from all disciplines), cultural and oceanic workers, scientists, coastal dwellers, activists, and researchers. Persons living in the region and with knowledge in the multiple languages spoken in the area are encouraged to apply. The workshop is aimed for 10 participants including the organisers.
