Art walk/Intervention’s collaborative writing pieces

Yesterday we came together and marched silently with some folks from the Communication Studies MA/PhD program/faculty and some friends from the Humanities at Concordia University: intervening in everyday rhythms, leaving performative traces along the trajectory, silently joining forces with a backward walking march and collaboratively writing praxis after the art/sound walk.

The stories have a theme indicated at the bottom of each of the pieces and were collectively written in style of corps exquis or rotating corpse. This creative method employed by the Surrealists collectively assembles a collection of words or images. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person has contributed. In our case, we just saw a part of the previous written fragment as well as the theme.


Photos of Art Walk/Silent March organized by Katja Philipp, PhD Student, Communication Studies

PhD student, Katja Philipp (Communication Studies) organized an art walk and silent march from Concordia to UQAM today to “come together and experience our collectivity outside of the classroom walls”. Students within the MA and PhD programmes in Communication Studies and the Humanities participated in the event.

Below are some photos from the event:

Tunnel Thunder

Could the sheer volume of the combined sounds emanating from the crowd produce a sonic intensity so affecting as to stimulate a change in discourse?
