As a part of The GZ we gather monthly Committing Semiocide; you are welcome to join us and change the gaze. Balancing over the boundary between reality and fiction, semiocide means cutting off your own meanings and understanding of things when relating to another.
The Gazing Zone is a carefully curated experiment on perception of Self in relation with Other. The experiment manifests in accordingly different forms (e.g. debates, performances, rituals, yet undescribed explorations) taking place in situ, to immerse in the relations of objects creating given environment, rather than to examine them in the void. In search for radical and conflicted minds coming from different fields and parts of the world, The Gazing Zones are an intimate collision of humans with non human people, coming together as objects having the same form of agency. It is also a playful way to engage with storytelling and narrative-based approach to the absurdity of being alive, having the world as a stage full of actors. The project is realized in collaboration with Elijah Lake, who wrote and performed the soundscape for our monthly semiocides; the sound was mastered by the amazing Jeffrey's Human Persona @almightyopp.
