we are movement creates
embodied public spaces
The common denominator of our humanity is our embodiment. So we fill downtown squares with the sound of live heartbeats…We put San Franciscans doing their personal movement practice in store-front windows…We ask professionals to speak about what they do—engineering, teaching, painting—through the lens of the body & movement…We parade through San Francisco handing out Body Literacy questions…We design online body literacy exhibits for shared learning…We Are Movement.
“Everything we do we do through movement”
Embodiment is not a pursuit. Each of us is embodied–all the time. Are you often prompted to sense this, to re-member it, to meet others from & with that awareness? Embodied Public Spaces reconsider, change & vitalize public space by giving the public direct, unexpected experiences of themselves. Such encounters shift the context of how we engage with ourselves, each other & our environment. They bring us into contact with Body literacy: the understanding that our embodiment is a resource for everything we do.
