HENDERSON, J., 2009. Possibility over time: sustaining interdisciplinary practice in the zones of possibility. IN: Interrogations: Creative Interdisciplinarity in Art and Design Research: Proceedings of AHRC Postgraduate Conference 2009, pp. 93-108.
The lure of practice beyond disciplinary ordinance lies in potential for
thinking beyond established paradigms. Belgian philosopher of science,
Isabelle Stengers claims that things already impinge across disciplinary
boundaries; that an “ecology of practices” is possible in the “event” of
interdisciplinary transaction. This paper investigates insights from one art
practice that links to other practices for particular durations. It thereby
enters zones dependent on temporal aggregation and attentive
dialogues, enunciating a chain of potentially generative and sustaining
production for those involved.
This paper was presented at the Interrogations Creative Interdisciplinarity in Art and Design Research AHRC Postgraduate Conference, Loughborough University, 1st-2nd July 2009: http://www.interrogations.org.uk/conference/
