Laboratory for Feeling Right with Jen Rosenblit

Part of "Creamcake 3hd Festival: Fluid Wor(l)ds"

DialogueInstallation

3hd Festival and performance artist Jen Rosenblit are presenting this year’s „Laboratory for feeling right” for artists, thinkers and makers of all types. The three-day workshop uses early intuition research surrounding the architectures of feelings, fantasy, collections and kits to deal with the body’s constant capacity to build and consistent drive toward autonomy. There will be an open studio at the end of the third day.

Participants will come together to explore and improvise in response to each other’s proposals, building on and overwriting another’s original content. They will read from selected texts, watch films, write, discuss and share manifestations of ideas, while offering them up for the other to take, hold on to and potentially lose. By holding someone else’s fantasy for a moment, their own might become more open to and inclusive of that which is thus far, unimaginable.

And when you see us again, we will be perfect. We will have done yoga everyday, smoked less, be fully hydrated, flossed our teeth just before bed, we will have good thoughts, expanded the use of our brain space by three percent and called our mother regularly. We will have grown stronger, more agile and at the same time sympathetic to others. We will have gotten more than two chairs for the dinner table, there is now plenty of space for more than what was once imaginable. We will always have good haircuts, the kind that look effortless. She would be like this. They would be over there.

He would be like that, and I would be like this. I would stay like this. She would still be there. He would be over here. I would be gone and they would all be watching. Then we could all…She would still do this. I would come back. All the horses would be in line, like this. One would be underneath and five would be above with two over to the side, busy with something else. Eventually, he would leave and we would manage just fine.
