Artificial Affaction Schema (AAS) ::::::::: by Esther Neff
Fridäy July 22nd ::::::::: 2pm – through Süpperclüb – open end
There is nothing which cannot be appropriated by some system or another or assigned within its qualification schemas. Thus, we acknowledge the artificiality of intended acts, endorsing (de)liberate construction of an autonomous communication system which at least qualifies itself as and within itself.
We practice this inclusion/exclusion + enablence/disablence where semblative (inter)facings bleed into fleeting sensations and perceptions, attending and in-tending to „factualize“ affects as properties of social schematics.
When done (de)liberately, semblatively, and affectionately, perhaps somatic and experiential conditions of cognizing social bodilies can become identifiable without becoming objectified, operative without becoming functionalized, affectionate without becoming reproductive?
2pm-3pm: examples/exceptions: performance of 1 hour during which witnesses/participants (de)liberate a semiotic affaction schema based on actions and modes of materializations situated
6-9:45pm: affectionate constructivity: including haircutting, face make-overs, supper-prep, eating/drinking
10pm: interpretive collective performance interpreting the score made using semiotic affaction schema
