Autumn Patricia Ahn "Documentation as Poetic-Witness": a workshop
In this workshop, we will use listening and writing as a form of complex “secondary” poetry. “Secondary” in this case, meaning a peripheral consciousness. Using rapid association, this technique allows the senses to take precedent to the consciousness. Akin to the “automatic writing” practices developed by the Surrealist & Dada-ist art movements of the early 20th century, also recognized and employed by early psychologist philosophers such as William James and writers such as Gertrude Stein, this immersion practice makes use of available information to inform control and release control of the artistic mind.
Attendance information: There will be two sessions of this workshop offered.
Session 1: 7:30-9:30am
Session 2: 6:30-8:30pm
