A new article on the LASER series in Leonardo, MIT Press

November 2022, Montréal

Gisèle Trudel [Co-investigator member, UQAM] and Nina Czegledy [Collaborating Member, University of Toronto] are co-authoring a new paper to be published in the journal Leonardo, by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, Cambridge.

This article is an open-ended discussion of a selection of five events from the LASER series co-chaired by Trudel and Czegledy between 2014 and 2021. LASERs at Hexagram interweave the research-creations of its members in dialogue with local and international guests. Emerging from the audio to text transcriptions of previous documentation of these LASERs, the word “movement” becomes a novel lens of analysis for this text, according to a “diffractive” approach. Thoughts and actions afforded by this word produces a surprisingly gentle yet compelling interdisciplinary weave, to inspire future editions.
