Technical report on Chapter 0 (Numero Zero) of Cognition in the Wind – Taqwim navigation, May 10-16, 2018.

Abstract : The present technical report describes the salient aspects of the project Cognition in the wind and addresses issues arisen during the field trip. General description of the project: We sailed for a week (and about 120 NM) on board the cutter Kleronia between Rome, the Pontine Islands and Gaeta, with variate weather conditions, embarking a number of pilot projects: a revisitation of the sailing draftsman; haiku writing in navigation; projects on navigation strategies in non-adaptive environments (including a study of the way in which clouds, changing entities, become reference points, however ephemeral, in second-to-second navigation); on the definition of scenarios in which orientation is lost; and on drawing challenges. In carrying out these projects we filmed in time lapse and in real time, in view of the creation of a short documentary, different onboard dynamics both on board and in the environment, from maneuvers that require sudden accelerations and coordination to the execution of line drawings and watercolors in difficult conditions, from the movements of the pilot's attention to convivial moments such as dinners. The project was directed by Roberto Casati (Institut Jean Nicod, CNRS ENS EHSS, Paris) as part of the research activities Disorientation Remediation (PSL NYU), Design: Cognitive Foundations (PSL IRIS; EHESS) and Cognition in the Wind (Institut Nicod), and had as a partner the Taqwim Association, whose members Fabrizia de Gasparre, Fabio Rosciglione, Fabio Sebastiani and Maria Sebregondi coordinated the navigation. Simonetta Capecchi has intervened as a draftswomen on board representing the Urban Sketchers association. The writer Maria Sebregondi composed the haiku. The shots were taken by Roberto Casati and Rocco Soldini. The key brief of the field trip was an assessment of the suitability of the vessel for an embarked research activity. The project is thus a Chapter 0.
