Abstract [en]

For us the year passed has been one of conferring around the notions of slowness and silence. It has meant committing ourselves to radical slowness in thinking, living and writing together. We have walked through three seasons of thinking-well, living-well and writing-well together. Embracing the potentialities of not knowing, our aim has been to enjoy one season at a time – in present tense.

The year began with an invitation that sparked collective, speculative imagination of being-well in silence. We entered the season of thinking-well-together, by exchanging short “postcards” of possible social experiments we would like to conduct with each other. The essence of this season was to tune us into artistic methods of dwelling in place, welcoming and being unprepared.

The following season brought us to living-well-together in real life by way of camping together. By camping we refer to an inclusive and mobile social concept without pre-defined goals and divisions into hosts and guests, performances and audiences, workshops and leisure. The event was rooted in place in multiple ways, bringing together researchers, artists, locals and entrepreneurs to dwell-alongside local forms of life and matter.

We are currently in a season of writing-well-together. The writings follow e.g. methodologies of Companion Letters (e.g. Carlin, Light & Veijola 2014) and offer unobtrusive guiding to silence, slowness, hospitality and living-well-together.

Our presentation will set up a small camp around these ideas, their outcomes and new openings.
