Drawing together insights from somatic approaches to movement, improvisation, care, and posthumanism this writing proposes ‘Practice Ethics’ that are activated in and by artistic research. Four thematic territories give shape to intersecting and overlapping areas of attention in Practice Ethics, namely: ‘Self-care and Attentiveness’, ‘Other-relatedness and Agency’, ‘Meshwork and Nesting’, ‘Repairs and Eco-ethics’. Through a series of exercises/scores the writing seeks to enable the ‘modelling’ of ethical practices, foregrounding concerns and dilemmas that may arise in embodied research. These ‘modellings’ offer space for undertaking ‘thinking doings’ and might be thought of as training grounds, or as reflective practicums (after Schon), through which it is hoped ethical attentions may be honed as a posthuman matter of care and as a practical, entangled, ongoing activity.
