Last week I conducted an experiment at my departmental conference. I wanted to test out the role of audience in my on-going research for reconstituting material from document and memory.
The audience were given envelopes which contained their role and instruction cards. Coupled with this was recorded audio that directly linked to what the audience were told to do, thus creating a visual to the memory heard.
They became the enactors, embodying the performers and audience of the original. It was an interesting experiment with lots to think to about! I think it has inspired me to make something on a much larger scale with further audio.
