Elisa and I are working - together as Pangaea - on a publication about collectivity, as a practice in process. We interviewed many collectives from art, design and architecture and people experienced in such subjects in order to create a publication that could be enriching for anyone. Soon will be published and happy to share it with all the worlds surrounding us.
⊕ 'Dowsing across field' Research
During the festival Correctionville#3 focused on (im)possibilities of map-making and organised by the Institute of Cartopology, I could present a workshop organised in collaboration with a dowser. The activity combined storytelling, walk and demonstration of dowsing techniques to investigate the 'truthfulness' of (un)conventional mapping methods. In this sense, this workshop permitted me to focus more on another meander of my research.
⊕ LARP exploration as world-making
Since Autumn 2021 I am interest in game design, especially into LARP and Urban games. My bond with these is given by my interest in imagining fictional worlds, in looking at the environment, would it be urban or rural, from a different perspective. I am also curious about the possibilities that a playful attitude could provide and in that sense at its sociological and anthropological aspects. Recently I have been attending the conference KnudePunkt about Nordic Larp and the summerschool Trust in Play, part of Elevsis European Capital of Culture. During the summerschool I co-designed the Larp game LIFE LOOPS.

⊕ Welding-writing Research
Lately I started questioning why the acts of writing and welding are so present in my practice. What do these crafts/mediums mean in my work? Do they communicate between each other? Can they communicate something without bearing any other meaning than themselves, just by being present? What kind of content could I communicate to an audience through such acts? At the moment I am mainly experimenting with the crafts, researching on a semiotic level and thinking of how these are embedded with my past. Somehow welding and writing resonate for me almost as a therapeutic practice, as a way to put separate pieces together through an organic continuity. The reason why I undertook this research is a need of gaining more agency on these crafts and a better understanding of their role and potential use within my work.
