First Found, Then Lost workshop

BEK - workshop 06.10.2013 00.0008.10.2013 00.00


Josh Ginsburg about the project:

‘Since then, experience has taught me, and a host of writers have confirmed, that getting lost is not always a bad thing. One might even consider misdirecting a stranger for his own good.’ – Ivan Vladislavic in Portrait with Keys.

The proposed project stages Morten Kristiansen and myself as ‘misdirected strangers’, adrift in the cities of Oslo, Bergen and Reykjavik. Exploring the sense of being lost, we will seek out ambiguous, transitory spaces, the margins of the city, and locations of flux, disorder and uncertainty. Through a rigorous process of digital collection, a highly networked digital archive of audio and video fragments will be assembled. A performance of live instrumentation and digital projection sourced from the archive will conclude each city’s exploration.

EDGE OF WRONG 2013 runs from 1. – 16 oktober and is presented to the audience:

5. October at Deichmanske library in Oslo
8. October at BEK in Bergen
16. October at the Sláturtíð Festival in Reykjavik

A short presentation of Josh Ginsburgs work that ”First found, then lost” is based on:
