Abstract

Authored form the position of practitioner-researcher, this paper is offered as the continuation of an ongoing collaboration between nine artists working across dance, visual art, sound, lighting, film and photography. The collaborative project entitled L219 culminates in gallery performances at dusk following extended periods of nomadic making processes. Focusing on the third iteration of this work re-titled Flock0Mania taking place in February 2015 this paper will consider how the creative process for this collaboration resides in a creative exchange across the live and the virtual, the embodied and the digital and the hand written and processed. In this the process of art making as unfolding across extended time and space through collective activity is entertained. Specifically the RSVP cycle, a conceptualization of collaborative creative processes by American outdoor movement artist Anna Halprin, is discussed as away to position technology in a flattened hierarchy of resources for art making. Acknowledging the ontological provocations that lay amongst this creative approach this paper converses with the work of Braidotti, R and Manning, E. to explore the significances of making processes that are distributed across composite bodies both actual and vitural.
