An Experiment in Listening
An Experiment in Listening is an exercise in communication. The participants must use only their sense of hearing translated into bodily sounds to communicate with the group. It could suggest how we communicate within a condition of difference and misunderstanding, which is a frequent occurrence in our systems of oppression and hierarchy. If we are really listening to each other, it is much easier to reach the possibility of mutuality, or if something cannot be agreed upon, we have a better understanding of what others are trying to say or do. This work is inspired by a piece The Second Law of Thermodynamics by Gordon H. Williams and the work of Pauline Oliveros.
