I’ve just completed the intensive workshop Designing Einstein’s Dreams with Anthony Duane and Fiona Raby at Domaine de Boisbuchet, Lessac, France. During the workshop we selected chapters from Alan Lightman’s novel Einstein’s Dreams, each of which describes a universe in which time operates differently. Working with artists and designers Kate McCambridge and Alison Moeller, we developed a text and performance based work in response to Lightman’s description of a world which consisted only of an endless array of images. We started with a proposal that a world existing only as images would be experienced only as instantaneous sensation or as eternally unchanging. Basing ourselves in the still, dark, reflective water of the chateau’s lake, we developed a series of actions captured in photographs. It was an amazing experience and we’re already planning to continue our collaboration.
