Inter-World-View

“世界观”(Worldview)之间的交互(Inter)

对“世界”的“访问”(Interview) 

 

Inter-World-View,是由中国美术学院·当代艺术与社会思想研究所(ICAST)发起、视觉中国协同创新中心mk承办、中国美术学院美术馆协办的年度项目,2019年首次启动。自9月20日发布Open Call以来 ,我们收获了超过100组来自不同国家、地域和专业领域的青年群体的热切问询与报名。在经过近一个月的了解、讨论与沟通后,我们满怀期待地宣布:15组青年群体将受邀前来,共同构造首届Inter-World-View的交流现场。

这些来自全世界范围的群体们,将在10天(2019.11.11-11.20)的时间中,汇集于杭州的中国美术学院美术馆,每天由不同的团体展示、演绎自己的“工作”,“占领”并布置自己的空间;其余的群体,在这一天作为听众、发问者、评论员,并在另一天成为主讲人。

我们期待,通过共同的布置、展示、演出、论辩、生活,这些有着独特工作环境、问题意识、创作方法与方式、生活状态——拥有独特“世界观”的人们,能够发生足够深入的交流,并在此基础之上,形成导向未来深远合作的工作网络。

IWV将是一个持续进行的长期计划,它希望探索的是完整的生活与工作的世界观,包括“如何共同生活”的技术。它希望联结不限于狭义的艺术领域,而是广泛分布于各界的:哲学家、科学家、写作者、策展人、建筑师、电影人、艺术家、音乐人、舞者,乃至匠人、农民、厨师……那些在日益专精和割裂的世界中,拥有但能够跳脱具体的行业和领域,进入超越性思考、形而上维度,共怀改变世界愿望的人们。

IWV将尝试放弃原有的展示机制中“开幕”的统治地位,探索某种展览、论坛、演出和工作坊的结合——或者什么都不是,而仅仅是“交流”本身,交流的过程即生成现场。

Inter-World-View2019也尝试了一个全新的做法:受邀前来的“报告团队”,同时成为IWV项目的“工作团队”,分别担任展览策划、空间设计、海报视觉、布展搭建、影像记录、现场翻译,乃至以作品与演出的方式制作工作晚餐,用自己的工作专长,加入到一个更大的集合工作之中。

我们期待着,这15组各异的群体在首届Inter-World-View上一同“访问世界”,共同生发出一个世界观的交流现场,一个超越日常的共在时空。

2019,让我们和世界谈谈。 

 

IWV2019 参与群体:

 

九樟学社

“万物需有寄托之地”

 千寻豫樟干,九万大鹏歇。栋梁庇生民,艅艎济来哲。——元稹

樟之盖兮可蔽日,沧浪清兮可濯缨。吾人立社于兹,寄山水人文之境为思,取百姓日用之道为作,汲集志士英才,求索新途,亦图存养之功,修身立命,以启复士人自由独立之精神。

九樟长期致力于揭示、建构、联系、整合具有持续性文化价值的社会要素,落实为具体的建筑空间、产品、出版物或研究。九樟相信:人在与事物建立关联的实践中认知并定位自我。这种关联一旦被社会系统所阻断、遮蔽或是中介,人们将失去与事物最真挚的精神联系。在此次IWV的现场,将递进式地展现多项社会空间实践,呈现“寄托谱系”在当下社会处于“离散-聚合”、“遮蔽-揭露”并存的状态。

九樟学社同时是Inter-World-View2019的工作团队,担任现场的空间设计工作,在每个群体抵达之前,为之营造预制“寄托之地”。

Fleshy School

“黑格尔舞蹈家”

来自卡利·哥伦比亚(Cali, Colombia)的Fleshy School是一支由视觉艺术、文学与身体实践者所组成的团队。他们对历史、身份认知、宇宙学、艺术等有着共同的兴趣,并最终将身体作为所有思想的渠道。通过对“讲座”形式的解构,通过现场舞蹈和音乐表演等方式,他们提供了一个积极的提问过程——将身体动作作为研究材料进行分析,对我们肉身中所投射的世界观发出质询,探寻在我们的聆听中所体现的生态学,在不同艺术媒介中节奏与韵律的可译性,以及联结个体-集体的那座可能的桥梁。

重庆工作研究所

“重庆作为方法”

重庆工作研究所(重工所)是一个把重庆作为研究对象的自我组织。不同于工作小组和机构的性质,“重工所”首先是面对城市工作的敞开式平台。重庆不再只是一种地域所指,还构建起一种空间方法和研究剧场。重庆集都市、乡村、山地、航道、工地、废墟于一体,早期这里产生了大量的工业遗迹、防御体系,随后被纳入全球化的生产链条之中,如今又开启了“智慧城市”的序幕,成为内地重要的人工智能试点和机器人基地……这一切吸引了一批创作者的注意力并成立了“重工所”,同时,这并不意味着只将重庆作为一个单一的工作区域,一种局限于地域性的田野,或用一种固化的艺术转换手段来制造某种艺术场域中的“土特产”。这些工作的实质目的,是如何重启对语境的进入式观察,不再自我他者化;如何进入理性的编织工作,对当今由全球化主导的文化,进行反思的、具有某种主体性质的文化构建。这一切迫切需要我们重回现场,重回田野,重回重庆。这里的生动性和复杂性,使得“重庆”既是对象也是方法。

中国科学院大气物理研究所(IAP)

“从混沌的现实到模拟的秩序”

 

大气环境塑造了地球生态,对它进行计算机模拟是几百年科技积累的红利。“盗天机,照人间”的大胆尝试,引发了计算流体力学的兴起。它一点点地勾描,把由原子构成的不规则曲面世界,画成了由数学物理公式在比特空间上的矩形投影。但现实总是混沌非线性变化的,圆和方之间总是有空隙的。科学和宗教的差别在于前者承认自己总是错的。倘若不能改变灾害、污染、气候变化的未来,预测本身也失去了意义;倘若原子空间和比特空间能无缝铆接匹配,人脑的存在又如何体现。

本次参与IWV项目的中国科学院大气物理研究所 (IAP) 团队由三位博士组成,均师从王自发研究员,研究方向是大气环境的计算机模拟和预测。IAP团队希望在艺术中找到科学的灵感,因为这个时代,自然科学研究的瓶颈已经到来。

PeARL

“用科学再现艺术”

来自美国德克萨斯理工大学(Texas Tech University)的表演艺术研究实验室(Performing Arts Research Lab),通过用数据再现对表演艺术的研究,从广泛的跨学科角度出发寻求科艺融合的突破,用科学再现(re-presents)艺术,用科学和艺术的结合显现(presents)人性。PeARL利用一系列跨学科的实验和计算方法来解决音乐、舞蹈以及视觉艺术的创作、表演和接收等问题,在科学探究的方法上强调创造性,同时也使用系统的、科学的方法来研究自我的艺术直觉。当数据在听觉和空间中被重新表现和想象时,信息的交换超越了学科界限,从而成为一种艺术体验。

思索讲坛

“转译连接世界”

思索讲坛是一支来自于上海外国语大学的多语种青年学术团队。结合成员各自的语言优势与不同的研究兴趣,长期通过工作坊、沙龙、讲座等形式,促使不同学科的知识与问题意识加以“转译”。此次思索小组试图通过“晨间读书会”的形式,对“转译”造成的形变与连接,加以集中呈现和讨论,以语言学和符号学作为起点,延伸向更广义的“翻译“问题,并关注“转译”过程中所伴生的形态、表达与功能上的差异,而世界性的沟通网络正则基于此类生成差异的转译工作被加以组织。

思索讲坛同时是本次Inter-World-View的工作团队,担任现场口译等多语种翻译的工作。

退化建筑

“何处是公共的边界?”

退化建筑(DevolutioN)来自厦门,长期致力以建筑作为基本模型接通不同的媒介,展开策划和设计,并使用空间介入的方式试探和讨论建筑衍生的社会心理。对退化建筑来说,在此次的IWV项目中,用一个名为《我们》(US)的装置化的项目,将公共边界显现,并且作为某种测量的标尺,对于同一时间内共处在同一空间中的不同群体而言,这正是一个触及公共与私人界限的良好的空间文化模型。

热带病艺术研究所

“症状在反复敲打桌面”

热带病艺术研究所由李一凡、蓝海骐、喻旭东和满宇共同发起,立足于中国南方的现实场域。“热带病”作为隐喻,不仅意指在现代性过程中所遭遇的不适,同时我们也将它理解为制度化认知之外的现场。珠三角作为最早进入改革开放的地区,在几十年中,积累了大量的矛盾与现象,这些现象仍未被具体地理解。我们深知言说之悖论:既是发现,也是遮蔽。我们需要不断返回,让身体保持在场。我们期待通过直面自身的处境,以一种创造性的感知方式,力图在真实的遭遇中形成思考,并尝试改变。我们相信知识是从现实的语境中生长,且与每一个个体相关的,是可以回应结构性的原因所造成的不对等的流动与个体之间的分裂的。在如《一个人的社会》的项目中,我们试图将精神分析的方法置入艺术实践,在互相看见的个体身上重新发现真相。理解个人作为社会实体的部分之时,社会秩序在主体内部的运作,并在一个主体现实的纬度中,重新定义实践的起点。

人民比特(RMBit)

“程序空间下的观、听、触”

人民比特(RMBit)成立于2013年,活跃于演出现场和数字空间。他们以影⾳互动的即兴现场演出、程序设计与开发、社会媒体反喻、社交数据操控作为创作⽅向,人民比特的成员既有个体艺术家的独立面向,也在团体创作中寻找“同步”式的互动和关联:感官(观、听、触)的同步体验,声⾳与程序、影像的多重同步结合,不同创作者的平行工作之间的同步与异步,以及在一个个现场中互动于试图加入同步的观众……从此类当下最为先锐的创作中,我们期待这个意义上的“影-音”(Audio-Visual)现场:从中可以聆听时代的数据深渊中探测出的回响,凝视社会集体化进程中变化着的数据面容。

家园计划

“Welcome to the invisible revolution”

“家园计划AnotherLand”是一个涉及生态环保和人道主义的民间公益计划,于2009年在青岛(崂山)起步。该计划致力于科技、经济、文化和教育领域的研究与探索,以克服当代人们普遍的焦虑,抵达更为纯净的精神。在彼此意识的共鸣中存在,向所有⽣活可能性的探索者开放,每一位探索者都是联合创始人。2009-2035年间,旨在通过行动重建“家园”的自然、社会和心灵属性,以反思几千年来人们面临的种种因无法理解彼此而造成的互相伤害,并以此践行关于生活方式的新方案,探寻人们当代生活中时间和空间的完整性。此次IWV项目集合了四位创始人,他们在社会不同领域的边界上进行了持续多年的推敲和延展。四人试图在各自及交叉的实践轨迹、独立与交叠的行为关系线中,重新发现可能隐藏的典型运行方式和工作方法,以期将这些难以定义的偶然与必然性,形成一种可见的世界观样本。

北国项目

“业余时间就建了个......”

“北国项目”是围绕着一片山西临汾南郊的土地,土地边的小树林和土地上的四个人发生的一系列故事。这些人们的相遇、组合、交谈,每个决定的节点仿佛戏剧化到了极点,又反而转向平凡得不能再平凡:荒诞而又自洽。“国”是“大家”,是想象的共同体,是“小家”的延伸,那如果有人正儿八经地建立一个大与小之间的单位呢?“北国项目”由此而生,成员们有Gephi专家,重症肌无力社区创建及维护者,关联群众里有律师大状等,大家以群体作为行动的方式,踏实地以耕种为业,内里却是对一切固有定义的疑惑和再问询,以及对“是否该疑惑”这件事的再提问。而“家国”的观念,在此时显得既抽象、又具体,成为对每一个平凡个体真实的生活关切。

Passepartout Duo+AnyOne

“愿你生活在有趣的地方”

“Passepartout Duo+AnyOne” 是一个进行在地性和跨媒介声音创作的组合,将音乐视为一种新的通用语言,与具体的环境和事件对话。小组成员钢琴家Nicoletta Favari和打击乐手Christopher Salvito 在世界各地持续了多年的旅行,他们受到不断变化的地理位置的影响,捕捉自我加以诠释的音乐反馈回地方,并通过跨学科协作、音乐实验、沉浸式音乐演出,在不同文化和地域的交汇处生发多重音乐的可能。此次在IWV的现场,Passepartout Duo+AnyOne将以个体重构小组、声音重构音乐的方式,展开声音的“交换”,并将团队中“anyone”/“异质性”的个体进行共同创造与联合发声,在日落之后,以即兴而无言的音乐,对IWV的每日现场交流发出回应(feedback)。

午山 

“漫游小说集”

 

午山成立于2015年,其名来自一个已经失踪的社区的巴士站台,共有八名成员。次年夏日,午山的电影作品《漫游》诞生。“漫游”是午山行走的姿态,而杭州的地理是午山行走的起点。午山与之交换的远不止风景,还有无数清晰或不可言明的故事。作为一群影像工作者,午山希望用摄影机穿插、连结创作者与观看者的感性经验与想象,探索断章间的文学空间,展开由此地到彼处的“此外”中被折叠的叙事,进入小径分叉的花园,在世界的混沌与褶皱中信步,写作一部由所有人的记忆、幻觉塑造的影像小说集。

午山同时是此次Inter-World-View的工作团队,担任现场纪录影片的拍摄工作,而“拍摄”与“访谈”,正是自我的展示,也是与他人的交互。

熟道

“发酵是有控制的连接”

“熟道” 成员来自雕塑与建筑背景,他们把“食物”作为创作对象,通过食物的“游、宴、礼”,将“吃”这件日常事件和空间建构、雕塑理念相结合。尝试以食物调动感觉、分解知觉,放慢食的动作,主体对于食物的认知和体验,逆向抵抗各环节加速的荒漠现实。在本次的IWV现场中,“发酵”是熟道团队探究的核心议题,而作为本次Inter-World-View2019现场食物创作团队,每一天的食宴,本身既是一次演出,也是一场交流。

发酵不仅暗示着无限的时间绵延,同时也构成“关系”产生的起点和过程。随着IWV每日项目的进展,在空间中制造的痕迹、与其他团队的每日交流互动,也将成为“发酵”的对象,以递进式的叙述进行食物的再造性实(shi)验(yan)。

BluePrintPlug

“以制图会通世界”

BluePrintPlug由中国美术学院创新设计学院本科二年级同学组成,是此次Inter-World-View的工作团队,担任视觉设计工作。远溯河洛图学展开内容与图解的总谱,将“图解”作为信息转化和知识梳理的生产实践方式,从总体知识结构的纲举目张,结合个体关切展开差异化的叙事与分析,以系统化和系列化的线索提取、跨时空比较为基本方法,以制图会通世界,深入社会结构,浅出日常世界,进行创造性蓝图的搭建设计。

研究所以文化研究、社会思想、媒体理论和批评话语分析为知识基础,广泛联接国内外的策展人、批评家、艺术家与学者,以具有当代学术眼光的、系统的跨文化研究,探寻突破传统话语模式的文化主体性,通过持续不断的批判性思考与创作、策展发动与实践,探索当代中国艺术创作、媒体实验和知识生产的形态更新与发展方向。

 

Inter-World-View

An Inter-action of Worldviews

An Interview of the World

 

Inter-World-View, first launched in 2019, is the annual program sponsored by China Academy of Art – ICAST, catered by The Centre for Chinese Visual Studies and coordinated by CAA Art Museums. Since the Open Call was issued on 20th Sep., we received inquiries and applications from more than 100 youth groups in various fields from different countries and regions. We learned, discussed, and compared our notes for nearly a month, and now we can announce with full expectation that 15 of them will be invited to co-construct the scene of communication in the first session of IWV.

 

These groups from all over the world shall gather in China Academy of Art, Hangzhou. Every day in the ten days’ time (2019.11.11-11.20), different groups will exhibit and perform their own “work” and “take up” and decorate their own space; other groups will be the audience, inquirers, and commentators, and also the lecturers in another day.

 

We hope that, through collective decoration, exhibition, performance, debate, and living, those people with specific working environment, problem awareness, way of creation, state of life -- i.e. with unique Worldview, can come up with in-depth communication, and on the basis, form a far-reaching working net for the future.

 

IWV is going to be a long-term program. What it hopes to probe into is a whole set of worldviews on living and working, involving techniques about “ how we can live together.” What it hopes to connect is not only the field of art in a narrow sense, but a much more dispersed one: philosophers, scientists, writers, curators, architects, filmmakers, artists, musicians, dancers and even craftsmen, farmers, cooks…… those people who work in but can get out of specific walks of life, come into surpassing thoughts and into metaphysical dimensions, and together, have a will to change the world, in a world which becomes more and more specialized and divided.

 

IWV tries to abandon the dominance of “inauguration” in the original exhibition mechanism, and probes into some combination of exhibition, forum, performance and workshop – or nothing but “communication” itself. The process of communication itself is the constructing of the locale.

 

Inter-World-View 2019 also tries a new mechanism: “report groups” who are invited, are going to be the “working groups” of the IWV program at the same time. They will respectively be responsible for exhibition curation, space design, posters and visualization, arrangement and construction, filmmaking, simultaneous interpretation, and even making staff dinner as a work or performance. They will participate in a more magnificent collective action with their own working talents.

 

We are expecting that, in the first session of Inter-World-View, the 15 different groups will together “ interview the world” and build up a live communication on worldviews, a spacetime that surpasses daily lives.

 

In 2019, let’s interview the world.

 

Participators of IWV 2019

Jiuzhang Society

“Everything wants somewhere to dwell.”

 

For thousands of times, I search for Yuzhang of the legend, the glorious tree where ninety thousand Peng rests. Pillars shelters the people; vessels carry the wise of the coming decades.

The crown of camphor is excellent enough to shade under the sun; the water in Canglang River is clean enough to wash the tassel on my hat.

For a long time, Jiuzhang Society has devoted itself to reveal, construct, connect, and reintegrate social elements with persistent cultural value and fruit concrete architectures, products, publications, or studies. Jiuzhang Society believes that human beings know and locate themselves though the attempt to connect with things. Once this connection is hindered, veiled, or mediated by society, people will lose the purist spiritual connection with things. On the scene of IWV, Jiuzhang Society is going to exhibit several practices on social spaces in a progressive way, and display the “disintegration-integration” and “veiling-unveiling” states of “entrusting spectrum” in the contemporary society.

Jiuzhang Society is also the working team of Inter-World-View 2019 for space design on the site. It will create and pre-build the “place of entrustment” before every group arrives.

Fleshy School

“Hegelian Dancers”

Fleshy School is a group from Cali (Colombia), composed of visual arts, literary and body practitioners, who have a shared interest in history, identity, cosmology, art, and ultimately the body as a channel of all of those ideas. By deconstructing the “lecture” format and including live dance and music performance, the group engages in an active questioning process that analyses body movements as research material, inquiring about the world-views we have absorbed in our flesh, the ecology that manifests in our listening practices, the translatability of rhythm across artistic media, and the possible bridges between individual and collective.

Participants at IWV:Ericka Florez / Andrea Bonilla / Jose Luis Cardona / Hollman Alvarez

 

Chongqing Work Institute

“Chongqing as method”

Chongqing Work Institute (“Chong Gong Institute”) is a self-organized institute that sets Chongqing as the research object. Different from a traditional work institute, the “Chong Gong Institute” is above all an open platform towards the city. Chongqing is no longer merely a geographic signifier, but the constructor of a spatial method and research theater. Chongqing gathers all towns, countrysides, mountains, water-lanes, ruins, and construction sites, as well as a significant amount of industrial remains and defense shelters left in the earlier stages. The municipality was later dragged into the supply chains of globalization and is now starting its new era of “Intelligent City”— as an essential mainland base and pilot field for artificial intelligence and robotics. All these have captured the attention of a group of creators, who founded the “Chong Gong Institute.” “Chong Gong” neither sees Chongqing as the sole working area, nor performs field projects within geographical limits, or tries to create “local specialties” under some artistic context in a fixed transformational way. The actual purpose instead is to find out how to renew the intrusive observation of frameworks, how to prevent self-estrangement, how to rationally construct a culture with reflection, and a kind of subjectivity in a present world dominated by globalization. All of these thrusts us to get back to the scene, back to the field, back to Chongqing. Its variety and complexity enable “Chongqing” to be both the object and the measure.

The Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP)

“Computing the Atmosphere: From Chaotic Reality to Modeling Order”

The atmosphere shapes ecology. The computer modeling of the atmosphere is a dividend accumulated through centuries of scientific progress. The brave attempt to “steal the secret from nature to enlighten the human world” triggered the rise of computational fluid dynamics. Bit by bit, it depicted the cambered world composed of atoms into projection matrices on bit spaces by maths and physics formulas. The reality, however, does not change linearly but stays chaotic; a gap is always left between a circle and a square. Science and religion differ in that the former admits its perpetual falseness. If disasters, pollution, and climate change were doomed to happen, prediction itself would no longer be meaningful; if atomic space and bit space could seamlessly match and connect, how then could we prove the existence of the human brain.

The Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) brought three PhDs to this year’s IWV. All three are students of researcher Wang Zifa and have a research focus on computer modeling and predicting of the atmosphere. The group expects to draw inspiration for science from the arts. In our time, natural science research has reached its bottleneck.

Performing Arts Research Lab (PeARL)

 “Re-presents Arts in Space and Time”

The Performing Arts Research Lab (PeARL) at Texas Tech University re-presents performing arts researches through scientific data and seeks the active collaboration of science and art from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives. It re-presents arts through science and presents humanity through the integration of science and art. PeARL uses a combination of interdisciplinary experimental and computational methods to address fundamental questions about the composition, performance, and reception of music, dance, and the visual arts. The group is highly creative in its approach to scientific inquiry while also using systematic, scientific methodologies to investigate its artistic intuitions. When data is re-imagined in auditory and spatial processes, the exchange of information transcends disciplinary boundaries to become an exquisite experience.

SISU Forum

"Translation connects the world."

SISU Forum is a multilingual youth academy from Shanghai International Studies University. With its team members’ various language proficiencies and research interests, SISU Forum has long been dedicating to promoting "translation" between interdisciplinary knowledge and problem awareness through workshops, salons, lectures, etc. At IWV, SISU Forum attempts to intensively present and discuss the deformation and connections caused by “translation” in the form of “morning reading programs.” From linguistics and semiotics to the more general problem of “translation,” the group pays attention to the discrepancies alongside the “translation” process in terms of form, expression, and function, based on which the international communication network is being organized.

SISU Forum is also a working team of Inter-World-View, serving as multilingual interpreters.

DevolutioN

“Where is the boundary of the public?”

 

DevolutioN is from Amoy and has long dedicated to connecting different media and developing its planning and designing via architecture as a basic model. It discusses social psychology derived from architecture by means of spatial intervention. For DevolutioN and for different groups that coexist in the same space and at the same time, using a device project named US, which makes the borderline of the public visible, and acts as a measuring scale. It is just an excellent space culture model to reach the boundary between the public and the private.

Institute for the Art of Tropical Disease

"The symptoms are repeatedly knocking on the desktop."

The Institute for the Art of Tropical Disease, co-initiated by Li Yifan, Lan Haiqi, Yu Xudong, and man yu, is grounded in the realities of southern China. As a metaphor, "tropical diseas" not only implies the discomfort encountered during the process of modernization but is also a thought of a scene outside the institutionalized perception. The Pearl River Delta, the first region in China to open up and reform, has accumulated  a large number of conflicts andphenomena in the process of rapid urbanization for the past few decades, which are still not fully understood. We are well-aware of the speech’s paradox: it is both revealing and obfuscating, thus asking the actors to continuously return and to keep the body present at all times. By confronting our own reality, we hope to formulate reflections on real encounters and attempt to make changes with a creative mode of perception. We believe that knowledge germinates in the context of reality and is relevant to every single individual; it can address to the unequal mobility and the divide between individuals caused by structural factors. For instance, in the project of An Individual as a Society , we try to apply psychoanalysis to art practice, thus rediscovering the truth in individuals who are seen by each other. When the individual is understood as a part of the social entity, the social order operates within the subject and redefines the starting point of practice in the latitude of the subject's reality.

RMBit

"The sight, hearing and touch in program space."

Founded in 2013, RMBit is active in live and digital space. They produce art works involving interactive Audio-Visual impromptu live performances, program design and development, social media irony, and social data manipulation. The members of RMBit bit possess their independent dimension as individual artists, as well as the search for “synchronous” interaction and connections in group creation: the synchronous experience of senses (sight, hearing, touch),the multi-layer, simultaneous combination of sounds, programs and images, the synchronization and asynchronization between different artists' parallel tasks, and the audience who also interact and attempt to join the “synchronization“ during live performances ... With the most cutting-edge creative work at the current time, we are in expectation of such Audio-Visual performance, from which we can hear the echoes detected in the data abyss of the contemporary era and emerges the ever-changing face of data in the process of social integration.

Project AnotherLand: Invisible Revolution

“Welcome to the invisible revolution.”

"AnotherLand" is a folk public-welfare program concerning ecological & environmental protection and humanitarianism. It was launched in 2009 at Qingdao (Laoshan). The program is devoted to the study and the exploration in the domain of technology, economy, cultural, and education so that the universal anxiety of our time might be overcome and a purer spirit reached. Every explorer is a co-founder, who will exist in the resonance of each other's mind and remain open to every possibility of life. Between 2009 to 2035, the program seeks to rebuild through actions the natural, social and spiritual attributes of "homeland", to reflect on the harms that humans have inflicted on each other due to the ineptitude of understanding, and to practice new ways of life and search for the integrity of time and space of people's life in contemporary time. The IWV project brings together four founders who have spent years cogitating on and extending the boundaries of different spheres of society. The four founders try to rediscover the typical operation mode and working method that may be hidden in their respective or crossing the practice track and their independent and overlapping behavioral line, to form a visible sample of their world view through these undefinable accidents and inevitability.

The North State

"In the spare time we built a... "

"The North State" is a series of stories that revolve around a piece of land in the southern suburb of Linfen, Shanxi Province, a small forest on the edge of the land and four people in the ground. These people meet, combine, talk, each node of decisions seemed to be enormously dramatic, but turned out to be the most ordinary: absurd yet self-consistent. A nation is a big family, an imaginary community, an extension of a small family. How about someone seriously building a unit between the big and the low? "The North State" thus is created, whose members include Gephi experts, creator, and maintainer of myasthenia gravis communities, relevant groups include lawyers, etc. Members in the project act as a group, and they industriously take farming as their vocation. However, deep inside the question and rethink all given definitions, and reflect upon the question "whether there should be a question." At this point, the concept of "home and country" appears to be abstract and concrete at the same time, and it has become a concern for the real life of every ordinary individual.

Passepartout Duo+AnyOne

“May you live in interesting places”

"Passepartout Duo+AnyOne" is a team of sounds that creates with locality and across media. It takes music as a new universal language communicating with specific environments and events. Team member Nicoletta Favari, the pianist, and the percussionist Christopher Salvito have traveled many years, covering many places around the world. They are exposed to the influence of continuously changing locations, capturing the self-interpreted music to give it back to the locals. They also create the possibility of multiple melodies at the crossing area of different cultures and regions through interdisciplinary collaboration, music experiments, and immersive music performances. At the site of IWV, Passepartout Duo+AnyOne will "exchange" sounds in a way in which individuals reconstruct the group and sound reconstructs the music. "AnyOne"/" heterogeneous "individuals in the team will co-create and together voice. After sunset, they will immediately respond to IWV's daily site of communication with improvised and speechless music.

Midday Hill

"Roaming Novels"

Midday Hill, founded in 2015, was named after an already missing bus stop in a community. It has eight members. The following year witnessed the creation of Midday Hill's film Roaming. "Roaming" is the way Midday Hill walks, and Hangzhou is where the walk begins. What Midday Hill exchanges with the city encompasses not only the scenery but countless clear or unclear stories as well. As a group that deals with image, Midday Hill wishes to connect the perceptual experience and imagination of creators and viewers, explore the literary space between fragments, and unfold the folded narrative within the "other than this" from here to there. Walking in the garden of branching lanes, rambling around the chaos and creases in the world, it writes an image novel collection shaped by everyone's memory and illusions.

Midday Hill is also the work team of Inter-World-View and undertakes the documentary filming task. "Shooting" is precisely the presentation of self and "interview" the interaction with others.

SUPER DESSERT

“Fermentation is a controlled connection”

The background of "SUPER DESSERT" members are from sculpture and architectural. They take "food" as the object of creation and combine the routine of "eating" with the concept of space construction and sculpture through the "tour, feast and ceremony" of food. Using food to mobilize feelings and decompose perception, and slowing down the movements of eating, they try to reversely resist the accelerated desert-reality through the subject’s cognition and experience of food. On the scene of IWV, "fermentation" is the team’s core topic. Meanwhile, for this inter-world-view2019’s on-site food creation team, every day's food feast is not only a performance but also an exchange.

Fermentation not only implies infinite time but also constitutes the starting point and process of "relationship." With the progress of the IWV daily project, the traces in the space and the regular interaction with other teams will also become the objects of "fermentation," which will carry out food remanufacturing experience (shi yan) in a progressive narration.

BluePrintPlug

"Mapping the world"

BluePrintPlug is composed of sophomore students from the School of Innovative Design, China Academy of Art. It is also the working team of Inter-World-View 2019 for visual design.

Tracing back to the content and the schematic score of the Heluo graphics, the members treat "diagram" as a production practice mode of information transformation and knowledge sorting, combining the overall knowledge structure and the individual concerned to develop a differentiated narrative and analysis. With systematic and serialized clue extraction and space/time-crossing comparison as the primary method, they aim to map the world, penetrate the social structure and the daily world, to build and design a creative blueprint.
