FEELED re-imagines stadium sports and athletics through a neo-logic of individual and team “sport” actions. The impetus is gut feeling instead of domination. Instead of championing the gladiator who conquers to stay on top, we create events where emotional athleticism will bring all players to their knees. Our inefficient psychosomatic urges imagine a politic that we don't yet know how to write or read but that we attempt to embody.
