Depths and Densities: A Possible Bodies Workshop

Depths and Densities: A Possible Bodies Workshop

The contemporary infrastructural complex of mining and measuring soil depends on software tools for geological data handling, interpretation, and 3D-vizualisation. Such tools power techno-colonial subsurface exploration with computational techniques and paradigms. Possible Bodies (Jara Rocha, Femke Snelting, and featuring Helen Pritchard) invites you to collectively study open source tools for geo-modelling while attending to the different regimes they operate within. It will inject resistant vocabularies, misuses and/or f(r)ictions that could affect the extractivist bias embedded in the computation of earth’s depths and densities. The workshop is a trans*feminist experiment and an act of affirmative responsibility-taking for this turbocapitalist momentum. Possible Bodies is a collaborative research, interrogating the concrete and, at the same time, the fictional entities of “bodies” in the context of 3D-tracking, -modelling, -rendering and -scanning.

Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops for the workshop.
