Marcus Maeder presents an artistic research project concerned with the meaningful representation and integration of ecophysiological and climatic processes in and around plants via sonification processes. Jean-Marie Clarke gives an account of how the development of Rembrandt’s artistic identity can be traced in his signatures as an example of how attention to detail matters in an artist’s practice. Nandita Dinesh’s research uses techniques from site-sensitive, promenade, and immersive theatre to productively engage with the political deadlock that results from simplistic representations of peoples. Tormod Dalen opens up additional possibilities to performers of classical dance music by examining how the physical experience of dance and decisions of choreography influence the performance of Bach’s cello suites.
Keywords include: immersive theatre, site-sensitive performance, signature, pictogram, Rembrandt, blindness, Bach, kinaesthetic empathy, dance tempo, ecophysiology, bioacoustics, and sound art.
The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is an international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal that disseminates artistic research from all disciplines. JAR invites the ever-increasing number of artistic researchers to partake in (and reinvent) what for the sciences and humanities are standard academic publication procedures. It serves as a meeting point of diverse practices and methodologies in a field that has become a worldwide movement with many local activities. The journal promotes experimental approaches to both writing and reading research. Submissions from across and between disciplines, from artists worldwide, with or without academic affiliation are welcome.
