Dizziness as a Resource

‘Resource’ and its Etymology

This etymological kinship with water seems to be another hint to the watery depths through which we have to make our “way”, our “poros”, when we experience dizziness. Read More.

Ruth Anderwald
Gravity and Dizziness

Gravity lends weight to all objects and causes the tides, but it can also be used to connote seriousness and depth, or a metaphorical weight or tide. If gravity is another word for seriousness, lightness connotes levity, humour and flippancy. Read More.

Living in a Dizzying World – Art Competition & Survey

The understanding of the specifics of the artistic work process is still incomplete. Philosophers like Maurice Merleau-Ponty (on Paul Cézanne) or Gilles Deleuze (on Francis Bacon in 'The Logic of Sensation') have ventured into that realm. This competition is an attempt by a team of artists and scientists whom together are trying to come to a more profound and holistic understanding of the artistic process and its needs. Read More.

Making Ambiguity Fertile is the Present Mission of Thought

At this stage of the “just before”, of the potential, the ambiguous, the non-separation – the work of art avoids to come about, to take place because if it takes place, it is only this and not as well that anymore, it becomes exclusive. The great oeuvre keeps itself at work, because it keeps itself at this stage of the “just before”, “upstream” of a definitive actualisation, which would follow its definition. Read More.

Instigate Un-Balance

It’s always the same: the point is that on the one hand we are in danger of burning up, of evaporating, of going too fast, of dissolving, and on the other hand we are in danger of freezing, rigidifying, of becoming mummified and unable to move. Dizziness contains within it both extremes. Read More.

Dizzy on Stage.
Trance in Anthropology and Practice

It's one thing to write a text, but another to read it out loud and in front of an audience, where one becomes vulnerable. On the other hand, through this act of reaching out, potentially, it touches people more directly than through the written word. Voice is limited to a place, at a specific time. It's intimate: one speaks, the other listens. Read More.
