THE STORY-TELLING EEL-ORGY

Writing as an Aquatic Intercourse
A workshop by Noam Youngrak Son

Taking inspiration from the complex and enduringly obscure reproductive cycle of eels, this workshop involves collaborative and generative writing processes, with participants producing short stories about water that will be combined into a zine. Eels have sex in such an obscure way that no human has ever witnessed their spawning behaviours in nature. Unlike the linear, fragmented, aimlessly extending routes of humans, eels have drawn numerous circular paths overlapping, over generations, accumulating stories in their cells. The aquatic intercourse of eels resembles the collective process of writing that will take place in this workshop. The short stories created by participants will become the source materials for an algorithm to construct hybrid myths, like infant eels emerging from the Sargasso Sea. The ‘offspring’ will be published into zines at the end of the workshop, which all participants will get to take home.
