Many thanks to the artist Emma Waltraud Howes for her lecture Giants deliver Diamonds and discussing the works of our participants within the Studio Program at BAI | Berlin Artist Residency, Art School & Arts Incubator.

“In her lecture for Berlin Art Institute, Howes will present past and recent works to illustrate the benefits of improvisation and adaptability as invaluable tools for artists. She will introduce practical drawing and movement exercises to practice using peripheral vision as a tool to decisively direct intention. Through a vigorous and critical analysis of the role that dynamism plays in communication students will explore the malleability of their boundaries and the productivity of friction. Exercises developed by Howes may include: notation, improvisation, Gi Gong meditation, as well as voice and movement techniques.” (Text by courtesy of Emma Waltraud Howes)

Emma Waltraud Howes (b. 1976 in Toronto, Canada, lives in Berlin) works as a translator between movement and form. Her interdisciplinary works are informed by her background in dance, performance theory, and the visual arts, and are guided by observations of bodily gestures. Howes focuses on the development of an expanded choreographic practice that incorporates public interventions, kinaesthetic and architectural research, and graphic scores for performances.
