Slow Experiments is a series of exercises through which I attempt answering the question: “what can help us slowing down?”
The answers take the form of short audio tracks that take us on an embodied journey to slow land.
They are exercises for myself in giving shape to my research on how to take visitors along in embodied experiences of slowness. And they are exercises in slowing down for whoever will try them out.
In my last creation, Creatures at rest (2021), three women perform a practice of slow movement, attention, and presence on a rotating platform. This durational installation invited spectators to slow down and observe this slow practice from the outside, perhaps slightly hypnotized by the slow turning, the unpredictable score, and the music. In Slow Experiment, I investigate how the practice that the performers embody in Creatures at rest could be tasted and embodied by visitors themselves.
