Networks of Experience: Art and (Dis) Embodiment, presents a public lecture


In this talk I bring into relation two practices – Helio Oiticica’s Nests and SenseLab’s schizoanalytic work on the material practice of thresholding. Thinking-with Laura Harris’s work on an aesthetic sociality of blackness, I explore the aesthetic yield in practices that foreground emergent collectivity. With the specter of a pragmatics of the useless always in the offing, I explore the artful potential of processes that orient toward an approximation of proximity and compose with the minor socialities that come alive at this interstice.
