PROPOSITIONAL WALKING: Call for submissions

We are seeking submissions from artists and scholars on propositional walking. Propositions differ from pre-determined instructions; they embrace mysterious outcomes and chance occurrences. Erin Manning writes that propositions allow us to feel what may be. They are “thoughts in motion.”

We are curating a series of propositional walks for our research project “Performing Lines” [www.walkinglab.org]. We seek submissions that propositionally set a walk in motion.

Submissions should include a 250 word text description or propositional activator and 2 images (images should be high resolution jpg or png files of at least 150 dpi). Submissions will be curated and presented on the research website www.walkinglab.org . Submissions should be sent to stephanie.springgay@utoronto.ca . The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2015.
