Cognitive neuroscientists and dance makers share perspectives on conscious perception and self awareness  Paris 8 5-7 October 2012 Invited speakers/movers: Myriam Gourfink Patrick Haggard Lisa Nelson Erik Myin Bigna Lenngenhager  Steve Paxton Eva Karczag Aaron Schurger Participation fee: 40 euros Statement of intent: This workshop proposes a meeting place for two communities who have been investigating the nature of consciousness in, possibly radically, different perspectives. Over the past half a century (and especially over the last 15 years) cognitive scientists and neuroscientists have been studying the nature and neural basis of our phenomenological 'subjective' experience of the world, our own body and action and ultimately our selves.  This research has employed traditional paradigms and scientific protocols of experimental (neuro)psychology as well as the emerging technology  of human functional brain imaging  (fMRI, EEG, MEG, TMS, intracranial recordings). Though most of the research on the topic has taken the traditional   "third person perspective" , the intimately subjective nature of this topic has led scientists to integrate subjective reports into their experimental paradigms.  The study of consciousness and awareness using subjective (first person) phenomenological tools has been a central occupation within post-modern dance and related somatic techniques  since  at least the 1960's. Despite the shared topic of interest, there has been little cross-talk between neuroscientist and dance makers .We believe that such dialogue is possible and that it has the potential to cross-fertilize the research in both domains. For this purpose we have organized this weekend long workshop. The workshop will be organized in 3 blocks, each highlighting a specific dimension of inquiry (shared by both domains). Each block will consist of a presentation of cutting edge research in the field of cognitive neuroscience,  followed by a movement practice led by a dance/somatic practicioner addressing the same general issues. Finally, each block will end with an open ,informal discussion.  The workshop will start with a live dance performance and will end with a poster session which will allow for non-presneting workshop members to share their ongoing dance/scientific research. Program: Friday 5  (studio Keller, Paris) 8 PM:  "The Breathing Monster" ( A dance performance by Myriam Gourfink)  preceded by a  presentation by  Patrick Haggard and followed by an informal discussion. Saturday 6 (Dance Studio, Paris 8 University, Saint Denis) 8:00-9:00   A physical warm up 9:15-12:45 Morning theme: body awareness and the self Erik Myin (talk) Lisa Nelson  ( Lecture-demonstration/hands on movement exporation) Open discussion 12:45-14:15 Lunch 14:00-17:45 Afternoon theme: Perception and action, perception as action Bigna Lenngenhager (talk) Steve Paxton  ( Lecture-demonstration/hands on movement exploration) Open discussion Sunday 7 (Dance Studio, Paris 8 University, Saint Denis) 8:00-9:00   A physical warm up 9:15-12:45 Morning theme: Consciousness of movement , movement of consciousness Aaron Schurger (talk) Eva Karczag ( Lecture-demonstration/hands on movement exporation)     Open discussion 12:45-14:15 Lunch 14:15-17:45 Afternoon theme:   Poster/video session: short presentation by workshop

Erin Jonhson and I are working on a new piece called "Bobinetting" for the ZERO1 Biennial in San Jose this January. More information to come soon, but until then: 

Bobinetting is the contemporary appropriation of an anachronistic feminist device. In 1832 French ballerina Marie Taglioni dawned the first tutu to dance the ballet La Sylphide. The tutu is made of tulle, light fabric that consists of strong hexagonal stitching. The light and strong makeup of the dancing skirt allowed for Taglioni to move around the stage more freely and to jump as high as her male counterparts. Since the nineteenth century the tutu and its characteristic tulle technology has become the iconographic symbol of the female ballerina as sexual object. Bobinetting explores the way that technological prosthesis can simultaneously empower and objectify the body. What is technology and what does it do to our identity? This performance is a new media artwork for which tulle is a movement sensor. By way of stripping digital devices from the performance environment we focus on the physicality of the human body as it has always interacted with objects. During a time when new media devices are often staged as trendy fetish objects, we take away the devices to think metaphorically and historically about bodies, movement sensors, and prosthetics. Bobbinetting is a prosthetic dance between tulle netting and human agent.
