The Constitution is ever-changing and dynamic. It is the friction between structure and chaos, composition and improvisation, me and the world, ... These tensions arise in many domains of my practice and have been the guides of my research.
The Constitution is a totality, struggling to remain a whole, while being recurrently organized into different structures, articulated under diverse terms, inserted into many contexts.
While knowing that the map is not the territory and that there is more to the world than reason, I dive into the practice of improvisation (with sound, my voice, language, other people and visual material), exploring this uncharted territories, producing a plethora of works that swim together in the same current, related to each other, constructing this totality that found it's name: The Constitution.
Hereby, I present a snippet of the whole - a selection of works, inspirations and situations, intuitively ordered in a file system of a USB stick, an installation and a performance - a sonification of my written thesis.
Tisa Neža Herlec (1996, Ljubljana, SI) communicates, organizes, writes, performs and creates imaginaries (with sound, voice, in texts and images). Collaboration, processuality and the friction between structures ignite her inspiration. She is a thinker and a practitioner of the praxis of improvisation, exploring its emancipatory potentials.
