MERZAEROBICS, VARIOUS PLACES, 2010

Merzaerobics, taking reference from Kurt Schwitters Merzbau and its tenet, act without planning, offers a place to question, investigate our movements in everyday life. It proposes itself as an inquiry into the first 'architectural' and 'design' project, the movement of our own bodies in space, and as a place to liberate ourselves from the daily convention of our movements and simply to enjoy movement and exercise on a summer morning in a nowhere place. The Merzaerobics proposes a basic structure that is not a rule but a gentle choreography, and proposes all to be teachers and students and to enjoy their insticts. Part 1: Survival - a warm upPart 2: Adventure - energetic discovery Part 3: Creation - how to walk the dog Part 4: Being - a warm down MERZAEROBICS Freedom of Movement With ‘move without planning’ as its tenet, Merzaerobics is a recipe to free our bodies and explore the first architectural and design project, the movement of our own bodies in space. Merzaerobics means going to any place you like and moving how you want. It can be practised alone or in a group, at home, in every spaces and now where places. The Merzaerobics has no rules and proposes all to be teachers and students and to enjoy their insticts. To help start we propose a gentle choreography that can be altered or denied. - survival as a warm from head to toe or toe to head or any other part to another, move each part of the body gently. - adventure keeping in place investigate all kinds of movements, use your voice also. - creation move around freely, climb trees, run around corners, move like a crab. - being time to chill, wind down, move slowly, breath in air, find a place of your own to be quiet, breath in, enjoy.   Jerszy Seymour Design Workshop
