Please join us for the closing events of Feeling Measurements, the culmination of Kerri Flannigan’s residency at Open Space. Since July 2017, Flannigan has been devising and delivering a number of actions, performances, and skill shares, investigating queer experiences of place. Anchored in the fathom as a metaphor, Feeling Measurements has become an emergent, collaborative, and inter-generational methodology of research, skill-sharing, and storytelling. Exploring the body in space, Flannigan has investigated how we relate to, and move through our physical, emotional, technological, and sonic environments, asking these questions from queer perspectives. The residency format references the Collaboratory models engaged at Open Space in the 1970s, wherein Flannigan has collaborated widely to deliver a number of thematic public programs, focusing on skill-sharing. Collaborators include Laura Gildner, Estraven Lupino Smith, Katie Sage, Megan Quigley, Doug Jarvis, and Greta Hamilton, with whom Flannigan has devised, and co-facilitated several actions. Feeling Measurements collaborators have delivered zine-making and risography workshops, Slow-Scan performances, abstract map making, guided bird walks, and podcasting, as well as conversational and storytelling circles. Through Feeling Measurements, Flannigan has organized a number of components, seemingly disparate in nature, into an intimate space of shared experiences and skills.
