Kirchengasse 4, Linz, Austria
CoDE research student Michelle Lewis-King will be a resident artist, performing and giving a workshop based on her PhD research, at STWST 48 in Linz.
Pulse Project is an ongoing performance research series exploring the interfaces between medicine, culture and technology. In this study, Michelle adopts the role of ‘acupuncturist-investigator’, acting as an instrument or medium between herself and others and between cultural traditions for understanding and mediating the body.
Pulse 'reading', case histories, notations of pulses (ie, readings of the ‘energetic’ body and algorithmic compositions) are all used together as methods for exploring the cultural encounter between a creative producer, participants and diverse cultural/informational practices. Each participant’s pulse is interpreted as a unique set of sound-wave images based on traditional Chinese pulse diagnosis, the soundscapes expressive of an individual’s ‘being’ offer another perspective to conceive of/listen to the interior spaces of the body.
Pulse Project is one of a number of workshops taking place at the 48-hour STWST event in Linz, Austria, this September.
