In July 2022, as part of the first FieldARTS residency, two dozen artists and researchers conducted undisciplined and collaborative fieldwork across the logistical flows of the Amsterdam port, the brackish waters of the IJmuiden estuary, and the shifting dunes of Texel Island in dialogue with marine chemists, Marxist theorists, Black feminist thinkers, and benthic ecologists. This research was conducted with the conviction that fieldwork might name an intimacy with the field and those drawn to it, not the variously distilled outcomes that typically follow once the sand bank is translated as a bank of data. Alive to the plural currents, contours and conflicts of the terrains of study – sensitive, in other words, to its milieu-specificity – the FieldARTS Docket details some coordinates for thought and practice as they were encountered in the field. The pocket-sized book contains thirty entries that are provisional, excessive, dialogic, often brackish, only lightly edited and arranged. Consisting of critical orientations drawn into focus during the collaborative residency, these entries present a sustained engagement with a field languishing at the edge of cultural concern while remaining central to the shape of transitions already well underway.
