Maximilian Lösch is writing about contemporary arts for a local online magazine franzmagazine. Writing, language and perception of patterns are important instruments for his way of comprehension and transmission of knowledge. The frontal and active-passive way of teaching showed him that there was something important missing. So his focus during PoolPlay will be on recognizing patterns and opening of new possibilities of interaction.
01 space in me – space in you – space in us > how do we design such a thing?
Well, I believe the first step is listening. Listening in the sense of down-tempo, to calm down the continous noise of the world, to synchronise to the moment, p e r c e i v i n g and somehow by itself appears sucha space, the background sound, which sustains reality, and the space designs itself. This means it is design and is in relation with it … and withou explicitly naming it, this is the space, in which PoolPlay takes place.
02 How do I tune my sense of time to nature / to others?
Time is a very interesting process. We all know how time changes or correctly put how time is perceived differently. It stands to our intuitive synchronisation: it will happen during PoolPlay, we will tune us over the creative process in little time oases: we will meet us in a moment and only through a synchronised time perception interaction is possible. I see the PoolFillment as a becoming and decaying of many time oases, which are coexisting. They are becoming in an interaction of PoolPlayers; we live a timed ecosystem.
03 What is a signal?
actually everything is a signal! Paul Watzlawick famous sentence: “One cannot NOT communicate” says it all. We are constantly in a relation with ourselves or with the world, perception itself is a constant being in relation and I think that during PoolPlay it plays an important role to become aware of being and to learn how to interact on these complex signals. This process is amazing and spontaneous, which cannot be predicted.
04 What does BEING THERE means?
To leave the hustle and bustle of the world behind, to come at ease, get silent, being all-one, to be right now and right here and finally to dance with the hustle and bustle.
05 Which process has formed you the most
To learn to perceive “world” differently. And this is happening every single day. To ponder about prefabricated opinions and
beliefs and to look at it from a different, a non-local view point. In a certain sense our perception is formed by the reality we carry with us. To capture it differently means to live differently. PoolPlay is exactly such a space, where we facilitate this kind of perception of reality.
