Title Video and Art Probing
Person and role
Keynote Lecture:
Video can be used in a mixed practice of art and ethnographic cultural analysis, and as part of an open-ended explorative process of art probing. Practices of art probing is based on an extended open ended exploratory process that goes beyond the scope of specific research or art projects. Art probes have a double function. Firstly, they can instil inspiration and be possible points of departure for research, and secondly, they can be used to communicate and twist scientific concepts and arguments beyond the scopes of academic worlds. The talk will be combined with audiovisual showcasing of art probes developed during the last years. The shown art probes will be video works that have been crafted to move between the expressive and the subtle. Multi-layered and affectively dense audiovisual compositions have been combined with statements to spark associations, questions, reflections and emotions. The art probes have been used in collaboration with different stakeholders, to present specific concepts or as tools for elicitation. The aim with this talk and presentation is to evoke inspiration to further mixes of art and ethnographic cultural analysis, and to advocate that artistic and scientific output can be seen as companion pieces of an evolving set of provisional renditions.
