Bodystorming is one of the fundamental tools that BLM has used in it’s decade long collaboration with David Odde and his biomedical engineering lab. Bodystorming aims to reframe how we interact with scientific concepts and to promote physical learning environments, among many other things.
BLM has worked with many young students at schools to physicalize the curriculum they were currently learning in their science class.
The work centers simply around moving instead of sitting and listening. Enhancing an active approach to learning vs. passive intake/lecturing. Imagine a scientific model entered into a computer - input with data, rules, variables, etc. Now take away the computer and insert bodies!
Why read about gravity when you can fall and experience it?
