The space in our daily lives, which is perceived as immaterial, the seemingly empty space where dialogue flows is given substantive qualities and metaphysical properties in the virtual realm. Through creative dialogue, embodied play, and physical and virtual recording, workshop participants will be invited to explore their own relationships to the influences of negative and positive spaces on their expression and communication, and to blend the boundaries between physical, virtual, and imaginative spaces.
Participants will investigate how the reality-bending capabilities of the virtual world can further expand channels of communication to reconfigure the generative tensions between linearity, polarization, paradox, and multidimensionality in cultural dynamics.

Bio: This workshop is run by Yassi Pishvaei and Carmiella Zorzi, the co-founders of ImaginGeist, a Swiss-based nonprofit platform for participatory research into collective imagination about global issues. Yassi is an Iranian artist currently based in Germany, and Carmiella is an American-Israeli artist based in Switzerland. Both have years of experience in collaborative projects and shared training in the phenomenological methodology of Expressive Arts facilitation. Concurrent to this workshop at HFK, they are holding an intergenerational transdisciplinary arts-based research group exploring how imaginative and virtual play with the phenomena of alternative metaphysical realities can empower us to re-imagine how we design virtual spaces for idea sharing.
