Research output: Other contribution


Site-Reading conceives writing, reading and listening as aesthetic research practices, caring for their inter-subjective potential, whilst asking how shared spaces are constructed in/by/with text. The aim is to open up a multitude of intertwining writerly perspectives by doing observational writing based on bodily perception. The performativity of this practice moves away from the cerebral and redefines the solitary act of writing, introducing collective live-writing in public space as a literary genre.

Invited writers/artistic researchers make written observations of a public site for a time-bound period, collaborating in a shared action, though geographically apart. On Saturday 6 March 2021 at noon GMT seven writers in Sheffield, Vienna, Edinburgh, Berlin, Vaasa and Helsinki made notes in public space.
