Welcome to a series of online
symposia to broaden and deepen our understanding about embedding a head-and-heart
approach in our projects.
Join the conversation with
practitioners and researchers from different parts of the world and different
disciplines to learn about how they integrate and understand embodied practice
– tacit knowledge and skills - in their work. Our guests present their
work, bring different perspectives and lived experiences about embodied
practices and approaches to creative and academic projects.
We hope that this series will
provide opportunities for peer support and collaborative learning, encouraging
the development and dissemination of ideas and artworks in and beyond the
network we are building. Perhaps it can ‘embody’ the potential richness of
cross-disciplinary links and creative collaboration.
first guest is Priska Falin. Priska Falin is a Finnish artist-researcher
working in the field of ceramics at Aalto University in Finland. In her
research she concentrates on aesthetic experiences and embodied cognition in
ceramic practice. The core of her artistic work engages with the ways we
connect ourselves to the world through material encounters. She is interested
in drawing from an abstract space where words fail us to describe the embodied
experiences that create the grounds for constructing ourselves.
