Performances and workshops by Maria Christoforidou, Lizzie Ridout and Dion Star for their project Various Writings.

These films are extracts from Various Writings: Chapter One, a performative lecture at the 8th International Conference on Artistic Research: Please Specify! organised by The Society for Artistic Research. It was held in April 2017 at the Theatre Academy in Helsinki, Finland.Various Writings: Chapter One presents a selection of the acts of writing, observational texts, images and objects that constitute our research, serving to break down these activities and present the terms and conditions employed as a framework for activity. Focusing on the gestural and using Vilém Flusser’s concept of ‘pseudo writing’, it is an analysis of the interaction between the physical actions and the technologies of writing.

  The three filmed workshops and performed acts of writing comment on the scribbled, digital and personal universes of writing. The body is revealed as a golden thread that connects these different areas of research.
