WHO

Christof is a Canadian thinker, artist, musician and writer. He’s interested in simple, open-ended concepts that we can test out together and that expand on ideas of: language, voice, bodies, performance, space, intimacy, complicity and endurance.

PROPOSAL

Can we use sound, repetition¹ and difference to personally and collectively engage with space, time and labour?

WHY

Christof proposes central questions of how we inhabit public or private spaces, how sound or our bodies (and their repetitive actions, over time) can articulate spaces, about individuals and community, about repetitive labour. He does it in simple, clear ways and he’s interested to see what your answers are. So are we.

HOW

A simple activity for people to perform together²: 15 people lie down and with a live microphone, amp and the instruction to pound the ground 1,000 times each.

¹ Even out of the most basic repetition, difference is created: for just one e.g.: 1+1+1+1+… generates all the natural numbers (2,3,4,5,6,7…) but also all the even numbers (2,4,6,8…), the prime numbers (2,3,5,7,11…) etc. and so on… 

² Tested out and performed by people who have come along to Christof’s investigation group.
