‘Navigating Process’ is the second of two public seminars that focused on process mapping publications by ResCen Research Associate Artists (the first seminar in this series was ‘Mapping Processes’ in May 2006). In this seminar Graeme Miller, Richard Layzell and Rosemary Lee talked about their most recent publication work with ResCen, as well as the implications of revealing process through the creation of another product: a publication.
Graeme Miller conducted a conversation with himself about 20 years of the artist’s notebooks. He trawled, at breakneck pace, the entire history of his own dialogue with the page as an arts practitioner. This conversation was in response to his ResCen process mapping webpages Back-Comb that feature reflections by himself and other artists on selected pages of his notebooks.
Richard Layzell presented The Manifestation in conversation with Tania Koswycz (incorporating her aesthetic of absence). This multi-dimensional interactive presentation focused on the emerging Manifestation, a major new collaborative work by the two artists. Richard’s ResCen webpages Route Planner were also shown as part of this seminar.
Rosemary Lee talked about her new collaborative publication, Beached: a commonplace book, which is part of an ongoing open exchange between herself as a choreographer and observer and writer Niki Pollard. The book takes an experimental approach and looks for new ways of capturing the process of creating a dance work through words and innovative design.
