Gestures  that  in  their migration process and mediation, they produce new ways of seeing, unexpected emergence, alternative meanings. To think about somatic expressions in terms of an archive that migrate across bodies, time.

Gestures have the potential to bridge the imaginable and unimaginable, the past and future, the archivable and unarchivable, making connections across time and space.

Inscriptions that hang and expand in unpredictable ways as a living embodied archive migrates across borders, bodies, and materials.
(Carrie Noland) Gestures shape affects that lack prefixes, confined meaning.

Poetic Gesture

Performative encounters, we are Gesturing to other places, other forms of connection, and at the same time, calling into question visibility, liveness, and materiality of artistic expressions.

Performative Gesture of looking backward

“The gesture of the time-lag is one that shows itself, by virtue of the still, to be a gesture—to have posture, to enunciate. That posture, that enunciation, does not solely happen in past time, nor singularly in present time, but steers a wobbly course through repetition and reappearance— reappearance rife with all the tangled stuff of difference/sameness that anachronism, or syncopated time, or basic citationality affords”

(p. 143).Schneider, Rebecca, Performing Remains,
