Shift/Work Speculations

Shift/Work invites you to participate in a new workshop.

Join us at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop on 3rd & 4th March 2017 to scribe and audition Speculations.

Shift/Work: Speculations will be a 3-hour workshop in which participants develop, learn and apply speculative artistic research methods. It is crucial that the genesis of this workshop is, in its own right, speculative. Our speculative process encourages artistic practices that cannot be held, observed‌ or enacted without taking risks or experiencing their consequences.

To this end, Shift/Work: Speculations will be collectively composed and play-tested at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop on 3rd & 4th March 2017 at a participatory action-research workshop ordained to fabricate speculative artistic research methods.

Speculative methods may include, but are not limited to: abduction, syncretism, forecasting, futurism, divination, becoming-rites, probing (making and employing actants), paradisciplinarity, ‘pataphysics, hyperstition, theory-fiction, mythopoesis, fabulation, fictioning, (mis)management, gaming / playing, versioning, licensing, servicizing, technés / technoetics, extended cognition (ExC), imaginative propositions, paper architecture, thought experiments, proposing, lateral thinking/feeling/knowing, weird-ing, speculative realism, mangle-practice….
