Creators: Tyzlik-Carver, Magda and Hallmann, S.
Abstract / Summary:

Common Practice is a reading group that uses Wiki and Skype to perform a Calvino-style manipulation of texts. Through unpredictable cobbling together of texts, poetry, people, code, language, Wiki, chat, conversations etc. we will co-produce untagged and free style body/ies of knowledge.

The reading groups that make up common practice will take place in June and September. You are invited to read, write, tinker with and intervene in the literary and theoretical texts and poetry together with others through the simple-to-use online tools.

Common Practice references the widespread and increasingly familiar activity of using online tools in everyday to communicate, contact, work, socialise, play, research, be entertained, etc. The practice embodies the curiosity to experience ways in which human and machine skills and abilities perform together.

More importantly, however, Common Practice also refers to the fact that it is done in common - together with others. Thus it is social space of knowledge materialised through co-labour, codeworking and language. Anxiety, concern and conflict might be part of the practice in the same way that curiosity, hospitality and kindness are hoped for. This is practice in flux, nomadic practice that exists in the common. Knowledge and experiences generated during the session will be captured by its users.
