Machine Wilderness Workshops

Transmediale

  • start with a general introduction of Machine Wilderness and the workshop / 30min
  • then move outside for a visit to some mixed green zone, do warm up / 15min
fieldwork part 1:
  • people each explore the terrain imagining a typical day of an animal / 20 min
  • [what are it's daily goals?]
  • [what are it's daily challenges?]
  • [what opportunities is it looking for?]
  • [how / where does it get information to act on?]
  • [what social communities does it belong to?]
  • [how does it avoid danger?]
  • [what is it's energy source?]
  • [how does it celebrate it's existence?]
  • take notes, make sketches in notebooks


  • regroup and review what happened, feedback from group and by Matthew from experience in behavioral ecology. / 10 min
fieldwork part 2:
  • explore the same are looking at the animal as a force of influence on its environment / 15 min
  • regroup and review what occurred, feedback from group and by Matthew from experience in behavioral ecology. / 10 min
fieldwork part 3:
  • decide if you work alone or in a group
  • based on our observations from the perspective of the animal we try to design a 'wilderness machine' based on it's phenology
  • so imagine you are a machine that wants to be a bird (i.e. your animal of choice) and learn how to do that by joining the local population
  • [how would you (the machine) make contact?]
  • [where would you go, what would do?]
  • [what would be your strategy?]
  • [what role could you play in that community / population?]
fieldwork part 4:
  • explore the area looking at the force of influence of your 'wilderness machine'
  • we go back inside, review, document(!) and relax
