Back in Aarhus!


As part of my ongoing Phd research project, Performing Urban Complexity, during my visiting research at PIT University of Aarhus, I will explored the potentiality and performativity of body as tool for read, map and translate urban complexity. In the following weeks, I will established a collaborative research platform in which he will collaborate with researchers, practitioners to developed EM_toolkit, a new methodological toolkit for urban mapping and performance. The toolkit is able to accumulate-assemble-reassemble data from and with the city and translates that data into performance. Informed by Action Research strategies, Em_toolkit will implies a sequence of steps and processes built on ethnographic data collection, field work practices, network analysis and performance.
