During the sessions DownDwarsDela,
Down Dwars Delà is a trio of words from English, Dutch and French. These aren’t translations but instead position(ing) that we see as talking back to the places and postures we’ll take, experiment with and visit during two sessions. We look at these words as forming a vector between the beyond, the out-of-reach and the experienceable world.
We propose a picknick, guided by the "Powers of Ten", a video of R. and C. Eames, commissioned by IBM in 1968, revisited in Variations by Futurefarmers 2011 - from solar system to subatomic level.
Where does the desire to expand our knowledge and understanding come from? To what lengths will we go to "know?" Who is impacted by this quest and where has this knowledge led us? What is the human factor within the search for knowledge?
A Variation is a journey through various fields of inquiry, from human psychology and philosophy to ecology, microbiology, astrobiology, environmental science, and zoology, that collects and presents knowledge (in this case, as it is constituted inside a major university) that provide a contemporary portrait of various perspectives on our changing world.

# Session 1 DownDwarsDela - Eben Ezer (BE)mapping of the area
De la rigueur de la science- Mais ça pourrait s'appeler de l'erreur de la science. L'effort de tout cartographier rends l'effort même complètement obsolète.
There's an interesting vibration between the critic of the carthographic effort Livia is making and the map here, assembled. I like it because the point of friction is directly visible: the effort to map, to render a physical 'territory' through a mathematical rationalization + the impossibility of stabilization and complete rendering.... It is cutting through picture, probably the The Power of one and zero.
disorienting and difficult to follow
Zeros is less than One
For the documentation, we used a raspberry pi with camera + an installed ∏-box micro FM transmitter which modulates SSTV (Slow Scan Television) images and sent them via a chosen Fm frequency. The device was used in the Electromagic project which was developping intsruments for the electromagnetic commons.
