12 Mile Bay Research-Creation Residency
In Summer 2013, researchers from the Pedagogical Impulse sojourned on 12 Mile Bay, Georgian Bay for several days to explore notions of post-humanism and research-creation through textual analysis and art making. During the event, researchers spent mornings conducting close readings of texts that focused on post-humanism, new materialism and queer ecologies. Each afternoon, participants explored the readings further through research-creation engaging in artistic practices including papermaking, collective cooking, and filmmaking as ecologies of co-composition. The event highlighted the importance of slowness, newness, affect, and the intra-personal in educational discourse and art making.
