Casual Loops/Squiggles
The overlap of many artists and curators will define the structure of this workshop, the main event performance/presentation/production/exposition will be in the middle of the laboratory, to change and talking about the concept of "production" (idea of cumulative process with a final result and presentation) and focus on the theme of the work at the moment of the actual presentation.
We will work with the overlap as symilar as the Doppler effect or at the temporal structure of the predestination.

We will learn:
-How to hear the Doppler frequencies in both the directions in the same time
-How to make a pool ball bump into itself?

But so:
-What are the ways where future and past complicate each other?
-How to work with the result of an event before it happen (and after)?
-Can be a new start after the event?
-The movements of the pool ball and the Doppler sound can be archive? If yes, how?
-A fake identity has time? How it connect with its time?

In this world, wich is an eternal circle, publishing and producing are part of the same word. So, a draft of publishing will be complete before the end of the workshop and use for your past and future art.
