Contribution to ARW 2022 (Artistic Research Week at KHiO). Exhibit #14/1 is a lineup: a forensic panel with elements in different materials that serve to document findings and drive a query. The panel documents the reading of 6 books, situated and positioned by the events of a journey in the summer of 2021. The panel search and queries possible connections between the confinement of Aby Warburg in the Bellevue asylum (related in Ludwig Binswanger’s sick journal ), and the confinement during the pandemic (as discussed by Bruno Latour in After Lockdown ). The project does not answer the questions it asks, but drives the query to the point where the “material speak”: and can reveal things that overthinking will blur. Which is the point of a lineup, whether taken in a forensic, design or forensic design sense. The lineup #14/1 is a map for uncharted territories with no rescue, where the point of the map is to monitor change rather than retracing ones’ steps. And where the virtue a map is that it is passive. And at this a lucid counterpoint to agitation. The point of this map is therefore not to act, but to emerge as an enabler of a different kind, which is to be a body—or, a proxy witness—to change, whether it is in our environment, in us, or a compound state of energy. Changes in the electrosphere. A turn to the terrestrial. Link to #12 MQAR: https://khioda.khio.no/khio-xmlui/handle/11250/2838483
