Meet with your dialogue research partner and perform the research (collect a dialogue).

Research assignment:
Collect a dialogue. This may be a conversation between two or more people. It should have five parts that is, five different speech responses (times someone speaks) (If it is between two people, A speaks three times and B speaks twice.) But it can be longer than that. Keep in mind the piece probably can’t hold a very long dialogue and there will be a few of them to choose from, we may use more than one.

With your partner(s) determine a criteria for your search either a method of searching or an area I which to search. Come up with a plan (a methodology). Then perform the research by going into the library or the field or wherever it is that your methodology takes you.

Please don’t spend more time on this than you can afford. Make sure that you enjoy the collection activity or at least the idea of it.

A new collaboration begins with this second week in this second year of the Dove, the Ghost, the Handkerchief Tree. We can draw from the past year and propel ourselves toward the next while listening very closely to what the present moment offers.

When we meet again on the field of our endeavors we can look to each other with new eyes. Each day we are different people and there has been a whole year for the many differences to take hold. Let this change be our strength. I look forward to meeting you all again and perhaps some for the first time.

This second part of the project will focus on loss and memory and solace as well as collaboration, community, idea development, and facing the generative force of change.

Students will bring to the work their experience of the last days of Dartington College of Arts in Dartington and their ideas about leaving, making a mark, and the long look that seals a memory.
