Sedimented – When material acts
The contribution Sedimented – When material acts deals with materials as vibrant and intra-active phenomena. The impact, liveliness and interlinkage of material with the surrounding world is illustrated based on the material dust precipitation, a mixture of anthropogenically and naturally abraded dusts. A dust walk is proposed as an art-educational and performative strategy by way of which to grasp proximity to material and its impact on one's own physicality, sensation, traditional views and cultural traditions. It is an investigative search for dusty legacies of worldly activities that question value systems and traditional notions of phenomena through actions. Dust precipitation serves as an example of using material as the raw stuff of art-pedagogical thinking and interpretation, exploring the manifold possibilities it presents.
