a Happy New Year to all of you!
As much time has passed already since many of us met in Graz in September for our presentation "On the Choreography of Sound", I am very glad to have some news for you today.
With the new year the documentation phase of the CoS project starts. Our work will be documented using the Research Catalogue platform (www.researchcatalogue.net) and the project web site (cos.kug.ac.at). A first version of the documentation will be completed by the end of June in order to allow for a revision cycle during the summer. By the end of August documentation and project will be completed.
I would like to use our online space to test ideas about documenting the project and about documentation in artistic research in general, which is an interesting topic in itself, especially when considering the way it is integrated (or not) with the research work. This is one of the reasons why I have started to put together some material on our wiki
as a basis for a discussion with you. Maybe other team members will add more material about the other parts of the event. I am planning to update and extend this material based on your feedback and share what I learned in the final documentation.
From those of you who were present in Graz, I would like to know how the experience provided by the current documentation compares to the experience at the event. And from those of you who could not attend, I would be interested to know what kind of experience you can gain from the documentation in its current and what you think you are missing.
I also transcribed the discussion we had on the second day, which was a very interesting exerise. I will be happy to report in more detail about it later if there is interest.
For now, please take a look at the wiki
and use our blog or our mailing list to start a discussion. I am sending this message to the blog and the mailing list just to make sure that everybody gets it.
Best regards! Hope to read you soon!
