Unruly Gestures - performative essay

Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchDigital or Visual Media

Abstract

'unruly gestures: seven cine-paragraphs on reading/writing practices in our post-digital condition' is a performative essay (in review). In it we aspire to break down preconceptions about gestures of reading/writing that relate to their agency, media-specificity, (linear) historicity and humanism. Informed by Tristan Tzara’s cut-up techniques, where through the gesture of cutting the Dadaists tried to subvert established traditions of authorship, intentionality and linearity, this visual essay has been cut-up into seven semi-autonomous cine-paragraphs, accompanied by text.
