This contribution presents six Performative Video Tutorials, which were created in response to Bruno Latour’s ideas about the terrestrial. The video tutorials combine the DIY character of tutorials with geopolitical and philosophical reflections through the use of somatic practices. Notions such as grounding, folding and dwelling are being taken from the theoretical work of Latour and tested as scores for somatic work. The viewers are hereby invited to shift their attention through bodily and sensorial experiments, and to witness possible effects on their ways of thinking.
