Academy for Rhythmorphology (ARm) # 1

Rhythm makes form. The tidal rhythms create time for rest and movements. Between the 10th and 17th of June, 2022, we will follow the flows and ebbs of the tide at the shores of Slettnes in Sápmi. We will study the rhythms of the tide and the forms they create through sensing, recording, measuring, storytelling and ritualizing.

Pulled by the moon the tidal wave (ca. 12 hrs 25 min) is the prime driving force behind the tidal rhythms. Tuning into the tide is to attune our clock oriented bodies with the rhythms of the moon on the Arctic polar day. A rescaling of the tidal pull to the tidal pool offers an opportunity to observe and think through sensorial, spatial and semiotic entanglements.

This workshop will be conducted as a shared exploration with introductions, responses and individual research time. To be able to recognize the different forces and voices in the tide, as a starting point, we will identify and name them.

Where? Slettnes Lighthouse in Gamvik Municipality at The Nordkinn Peninsula, the northernmost tip of Norwegian mainland.

When? Between the 10th and 17th of June, 2022, in the period around the full moon on the 14th of June, which leads up to the Summer Solstice.

Who? ARm #1 (2022)
