In 2021 the FEELed Lab started a semi-regular, online convening of interested folks from different and same time zones. The idea was to have a reading group that would prioritize listening and ask little preparation of participants. We named this gathering Littoral Listening, calling on the land/water transition space for inspiration.
The littoral–where land and water meet and co-constitute each other–is murky.
On Friday February 18th Littoral Listening #3: Rest, was postponed. “I saw a world in which the sun and the moon shone at the same time,” begins the passage we would have read together.
On the fifth of November 2021 the Feel-ed Lab held the first of a string of gatherings by the name of Littoral Listening. As a low-stakes come-as-you-are reading group, Littoral Listening is a gathering space for being intentional about listening together and separately. Like the littoral, a habitat of land and water, at each of our edges we meet, ebb, flow, and articulate our mutual inextricability: sharing digital space and corporeal time.
