Acts of Mind
-manifestations of moving mind in dance
A kind of lecture.
This is the first part of my artistic research for my doctoral thesis. In this work I investigate embodied mind in my own dance and choreographic thinking. As a scientific basis for the concept 'embodied mind' I use the thoughts from George Lakoffs and Mark Johnsons book 'Philosophy in the Flesh - The Embodied Mind and Its Challenge to Western Thought'.
In my work I explore the space in my body and thoughts by thinking of these aspects; space, pattern, perception and renewing.
