You would not be just an ornament
Radio piece for Lumpen Station
#dream #sleep #wakeup #rest #reality #ambient #radio #spoken word
It is possible to access new interpretations of the urgencies of the current reality through rest. Dreaming acts as an engine to continue when everything around seems to indicate that one of all ends is approaching. Floating, hidden somewhere, appearing randomly, my dear dream, Should I talk to you or about you?
Because you seem to be a form of life,
Have we talked too much about you,
Have we talked too much with you?
I don't think so. Not enough.
So I imagine this possibility: talking to the dream as a concrete entity, a character, a body that can act just like me. I should invoke it to interrupt the productive and demanding everyday life. To awaken this assembled but paranoid creature in which threads of memories tangle and untangle. An unexpectedly alien intelligence, a precision mechanism nesting in the most elusive corridors of our intimacy.

Waking up and how to hypnopomp: the when, the why, the how and more.
#dream #sleep #wakeup #hypnopompic #transition #inbetween
"Tatiana Heuman questions fundamental assumptions and digs deep to explore what getting up “on time” means. She asserts that waking up at a certain designated time is a feature of industrial society motivated by economic growth and the need for effective labor. As technology developed, we’ve devised more subtle and subversive ways of not only waking up, but also sleeping. Nowadays, sleep trackers provide us with information about the quality and depth of our sleep. Are these advancements here for our wellbeing, or for the efficacy of our work?
After asking ourselves these - and many other - questions, we are invited to “stay in bed for a couple more minutes and start slow” with the aid of several exercises prepared by Tatiana Heuman. The four videos and three texts are an introductory guide on “How to Hypnopomp,” and a gentler way of transiting through this particular state. We are encouraged to devote some time to exploring our first movements, to reviewing dream extracts, to listen inwardly and outwardly, to develop a habit of starting to perceive slowly, and to document our daily hypnopompic states, experiences, exercises and rituals. Recalling or imagining a dream you dreamt and creating your own soundtrack for it, or reacting to your favorite scent with your whole body; these exercises aren't just here to exercise our mind and analyze our dreams, but also to help us imagine different, slower, more natural modes of operation at a societal level. It's beautiful, and all it takes is two minutes of your time."

Part of El contagio feminista for KUNSTRADIO curated by Anna Raimondo
Collaborators: #VIVAS, SASHA SATHYA, ESLABRAVA, LaNegrahLiyah, ELI QUETEMPORAL, María Eugenia García, Josefina Barreix, Estudio Siesta del Fauno, Luciana Rizzo, Gabriela Areal
We propose a journey through time to suggest that the feminist contagion, which can be felt in the fabric of Buenos Aires, is the result of a complex polyrhythmic phenomenon. This work is an attempt to bring together these unique voices from different moments and social environments, which both summon and confuse us. In the last decade, the call for feminism has grown exponentially, thanks to the converging claims of previously divided social actors. Still, many forms of feminism coexist today, promoting different visions of the future. Are there feminist ways of dealing with time? Is there a feminist time or...perhaps rhythm?

Agua de Rosas, LP, independent
An intimate journey of two
performers opens time portal to the magical island of Korčula where they live and create in domestic coexistence.
The sound of a dog walking on a wooden floor, stone streets echoing with strange human activities, sound of birds and rain, and magnificent involvement of the kids, the recording unravels sonic showers of the atmosphere and handful of details produced with kitchen objects, found objects, built and/or prepared instruments.
