This lectorial drift by Markéta Dolejšová and Jaz Hee-jeong Choi from the Open Forest Collective invites participants to consider feral data in the context of contemporary artistic research. We begin by introducing some of the key related concepts in the broader area of creative practice-based research and discuss different forms of knowledge and data that can be produced through it, as a way of worlds-making. We share examples of our Open Forest Collective inquiry and focus on the practice of drifting, through which we have been exploring feral data as one kind of research data co-created by and in relation to local more-than-human ecologies. Following the lecture and a group discussion, participants will be invited to drift – conceptually, physically, and otherwise – with and through the AVU symposium and collect feral data that can help render AVU’s diverse and changing artistic research ecologies. The collected fragments of feral data will be shared at the end of the symposium to open further possibilities for reflection and co-/re-creation.
