IDOCs » The Magical Poetry of Everyday
During the 4th IDOCDE Symposium, as part of REFLEX OUTREACH, we have shared some scores and thoughts around artistic documentation. We have shared post cards, we have put up posters and we have had volunteers moving around and interviewing some of the teachers with the scores they have created. In this idoc we share all the scores as a list and a pdf. And we give a link to all the videos that were created by our volunteers. We hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create and realize your own scores!

The call for The Magical Poetry of Everyday was :

Be ready to be approached! REFLEX Europe will be “all around” the IDOCDE Symposium. There will be questions popping up - of how, what and why you like (or do not like) to document your experiences. Scores and instructions will brighten up your awareness to engage in the magical poetry of the everyday.
There might be transmedial traces of teaching and research processes to inspire multiple choices and varieties of documenting. You never know when and where you will find the inspiration!

 

The video interview scores that were created by volunteers can be found in this folder

The scores that were created and compiled by Defne Erdur and Sabina Holzer can be found below as a list or a collection of cards in the attached pdf :
