Liar Lyre Seminar

by Leila Peacock 07/05/2020

‘That of which we cannot speak we should pass over in silence’. Wittegenstein’s words are oft quoted, but how then might we show what we cannot say. What potentialities does this open for artistic thinking. We wanted to consider different way of saying what you mean and mapping what you cannot say. Working diagrammatically, in an unchartered space between images and words. Mathematicians sometimes refer to the ideas they work with as ‘objects’. What does it mean to turn ideas into objects, to turn abstract concepts into language and arguments into diagrams and diagrams into performances in the production of complex artworks. In the Praxis Seminar Liar Lyre with Prof. Nils Röller and myself, the challenge we gave was to experiment with diagrammatic forms, sketches for experimental modes of notation. Perhaps to show your practice as a diagram or translate a famous artwork into a diagrammatic structure. Sculptural games with semi-scientific stenography, how to work with open constellations that move between drawing and thinking. Using existing diagrammatic forms to tell jokes, make points, record moments. Statiticians juggle stats, cartographers map spaces, sternographers notate proceedings, but a poet is a liar who always tells the truth.
