Developed in collaboration with scientists, sonic architects, tai chi
and tantra masters ΔE=W invites participation toward the energetic relation of people, practice and space with practical exercises and interactive experiments on voice, touch, gaze and spatial harmonics.
At the heart of ΔE=W is a game exploring energy in relation to the body, collective action, practice and work proposing a new language for interpretation and interaction within a gallery. Arnolfini invites you to play this game in Gallery 1 on Saturday 19th January.
During 4 Days a series of new interactive experiments will also be held as part of ∆E=W. Led by experts from a range of disciplines, these experiments provide the opportunity for the public to take an active role in developing the research around the project. Visitors are invited to a series of activities, including experiments, voice exercises, round table discussion, talks and workshops on Friday 18th January. A schedule will be posted with further information on this webpage in the near future.
∆E=W collapses the distinction in art between object and ‘the ephemeral’ performance by considering all matter, on a sub-atomic level, as energy. Looking at both eastern and western concepts of energy ∆E=W investigates the potential of art/action as a mechanism for the channelling of energy as experienced physically through the body, looking at the links between philosophy, holistic practice, physics and biology.
