Abstract

‘Salience’ a video installation for the proceedings of the Emotional Geographies conference Edinburgh University June 2015

The work takes Kathleen Stewart’s book Ordinary Affects (2007) as a starting point to posit one possible theoretical context for her work ‘Who’s Ordinary?’, a response to critical and creative work about the ‘ordinary’ and who this work ‘affects’. The installation performance makes room for the individual experience of ‘ordinary’; reflected through stillness and disorientation. An everyday act uprooted and placed within a context that takes a look at it ‘side on’, through delay, and as a ‘still’. Its aim is to disturb habitual ways of seeing everyday experience; and promoting the significance of the present moment in the identification of the ordinary.
