Thought and feeling, synaesthetic and cognitive states are not separate; experience is simultaneously intimate, cultural and social. Repositories of feelings and emotions encoded in material forms or narrative content – art works – embody public affect. Here, feelings are made out to mean certain things and not others, much like certain practices are galvanised by concepts of public affect and emotion. Revisiting Lygia Clark’s and T.R. Ericsson’s work with the most fundemental of relational elements – human breath – this talk elaborates the architectonics of relationality through a focus on co-presence, the clinamen, expectation and trepidation.
