Between place performance and score
Parallel paper Private View Tim Elliott and Anneke Lucassen

'At the heart of any notion of self and personal identity is the ability to recognise a boundary between what is private and what is public - where the boundary lies between us and others. For something to be private it must not be apparent to others. (Elliot, Lucassen)

This paper explores the dynamics of interpretation within collaborative exchange investigating boundaries of public and private access.

Drawing on collective experiences of Sound Seminar, the paper will explore the potential and difficulties of re-telling collaborative exchange. It examines the problem of archive and the possibility of case study as a means of revealing and activating a consciousness about practice based research.

Using 3 different voices (3D writing 1) and with reference to Joharis Window we juxtapose different experience and interpretation to examine the impact of individual and disciplinary knowledge (personal library) and investigate how the structure of case study might enable and restrict understanding(library access). We reflect on the impact of different experiences (internal/external to a project), how hidden structures can hold form and how searching for the things that don’t fit with expectation might reveal what we are not looking for .

In re-telling spatial dialogues we offer entry into a series meeting places to hypothesise how by encountering multiple and layered interactions of an original event as dynamic actions of a case study we might enable the reader access to the experiences of the project, uniting fragments of information and experience

For everything that matters is to be found in the card box of the researcher who wrote it, and the scholar studying it assimilates it into his own card index’ (SW1,p.456)’ p30
