On Packing Light

Research through Episodic Sound

2020 — 2021 (and beyond)

On Packing Light is an artistic research project that uses the method of episodic sound (it's a podcast) to think through the subject of textiles and clothing, ranging from personal accounts to political histories. On Packing Light explores the personal and political sentimental capacity of textiles and speculates the ways in which capitalism has shaped our relationship to and understanding of our personal belongings.The research process generates the material for the sound works, so research and production happens simultaneously through the duration of the project.

The episodes of On Packing Light were aired live every other Tuesday from WORM Radio in Rotterdam, at radio.worm.orgs.
