The press release is in French. I ran it through Altavista Babelfish for crappy English:
EXPANSIONISME - MANIFESTE 4
Paris, 2004 – Caracas, 2007
After the II World war, the compass of the art of avant-garde pointed towards Uruguay and Argentina. After the...
“Imaginations and its power emerge from journeys through the night, from communication that has become impossible in the heart of the closest proximity, from paths used by dreams to tame the violence of sex and death. It is under the surface of the obvious that imagination draws its energies, from the daily collapsing of past proofs and...
Nikola Tesla = wants to stand proudly next to his maker,
Timothy Leary = wants to dethrone God by becoming him (become an evolutionary agent, be the programmer of his own mind and the universe, become immortal).
What do you think?
it is is really great that we are able to adapt and make things easier and more efficient for ourselves.
but looking at it form another side we are just lazy.
sometimes i am unsure why i make the choices i make.
I have been discovering 8-bit music and "Chiptunes" (music made for the sounds on specific microchips) on the web. There is a musical style, visual aesthetic, and consistent mentality to the whole thing. Also, artists' interests appear to be generational. What I mean is, it seems like the older you are, the older the systems you use to...
"The cause which is blocking all progress today is the subtle scepticism which whispers in a million ears that things are not good enough to be worth improving. If the world is good we are revolutionaries, if the world is evil we must be conservatives."
"Every one of the great revolutionists, from Isaiah to Shelley, have been...
The haven all memes depend on reaching is the human mind, but a human mind is itself an artifact created when memes restructure a human brain in order to make it a better habitat for memes. The avenues for entry and departure are modified to suit local conditions, and strengthened by various artificial devices that enhance fidelity and...
Currently I am sitting in an apartment on a sunny day overlooking the river valley in Edmonton, Alberta. On July 19th we begin our trek through the Northern Canada, Alaska and the Arctic Circle that will last for 25 days. We will pass through wild and glacial terrain seeking out change as it is reflexively performed within culture and...
it seems like we are discovering new things everyday. that innovations are moving everything forward, or upward. technology, medicine, science. it's all going up. but when i get into an argument, i know deep down that i am just as confused as the very first being capable of communication and thought. even though each evolutionary step has as...
The Law of Conservation of Energy, aka the first law of thermodynamics, is a very fundamental part of physics, and is instrumental to our understanding of the universe.
But it also has profound theological implications. The second law of thermodynamics is often thrown around by God lovers as an attempt to justify their faith empirically. But...
Return to Earth
The imminent looming come is here
From the Swiss Alps to Strait of Gibraltar
Faceless creatures will rule the sphere
Chasing a sunken dream, a dark avatar
What a pretty planet full of reverie flings
Unfortunate the “man” who, half alive
Will endure hard-pressed by these lifeless things
Ubiquitous Habitats hold a minimum of two criteria:
1. Every point in space, through kinesthetic instigation, is a possibility for becoming a 'site.'
2. Every site or 'tentative holding space' (Gins and Arakawa) provides limitless potential for the organism on/within that site.
Applying this concept to architecture creates shapeless...
