Slowness in the Arts

Artists addressing slowness, duration, and acceleration

one step at a time like this

Over the past year, one step at at a time like this, an Australian theatre/performance company, has been recreating and touring a pedestrian-based ipod work, en route. It’s intention – and audience response – is that it slows / extends time and creates a heightened sensory awareness in the participant. It’s a conscious attempt to use a tool which so often is employed to create a separation between the user and their environment, to create a slower, more reflective and engaged experience.
