dc.description.abstractThis article explores how experiences of travel and transitions through, and with, unfamiliar environments can attune us to relational movements. Processes of disorientation and realignment occur as the daily material practices of tourists, such as walking, photographing, or packing a bag, contrast against the immersion with/in unfamiliar environmental intensities. The feeling and sensing of this provides opportunities for transversal practices to unfold, where bodies and environments, humans and nonhumans, move together. Through a discussion of my net-based artwork ‘ environment-movement’, this essay contemplates movements that traverse saturating environmental intensities and the mundane, everyday process of packing a bag. Tracking the creation of the net-artwork through a mixture of experiences—artistic, touristic, and ethnographic interviews conducted with tourists in Iceland and Nepal—I suggest how transversal practices expand actions to be productive and contemplative. Focusing on how everyday material practices merge with sensations of the environment, I highlight how relational movements can be felt as environmental entanglements.
