Constituting Institutions at The PUBLIC SCHOOL New York

The current ‘crisis of education’ forces us to reassess the question of what we want our educational institutions to do for us, and how we can/should act to produce these institutional realities; addressing the fact that collectively organising (self-) education today necessarily means constituting new institutions and reconstituting existing ones. In turn, this holds the hope of producing a more vital (polyphonic) institutional ‘landscape’ in the ongoing education of practicing artists.  Read more

Holography for Beginners

In his conception of the holomovement, Bohm used the analogy of the hologram to explain the appearance of objects in the world. He suggested that the world is comprised of imperceptible (to the human eye) energy within which no internal or external distinctions exist and, as in holographic technology, opacity is created by wave frequency interference. In other words, all material things arise from patterns of interference, or folds, temporarily highlighted in the mobility of a universal flux.   Read more
