What does it mean to encounter? How do I catch sight of someone without capturing and subjecting to preconceptions? How many people can a surface hold?
Can being seen be seeing? Or does a common presence require physical, haptic sensing of other bodies? In about 90-minute sessions, participants are invited to draw the situation, the people and the impressions that come together in each Zoom conference.
D-escounder is a meditative practice in which collective-solitary drawing becomes an opportunity of physically encountering each other in digital space. Creating special sensitivity to sound, intrinsic and extrinsic.
Coming from different backgrounds, and following as distinct aspirations, we were brought
together for a brief moment during our studies in Gießen.
Our collective work builds a shared place of our contrasts and distances.
Centered around our common desire to experiment with the circumstances of the past year,
without taking structures for granted and deviating their impositions.
