Some food for though...

 

I have been browsing through some ideas, research and thoughts and I came across a really thoughtful discussion concerning materiality and our material culture, objects found and made, hybridisation through combining practices and so on, have a look I have quoted a few topics that they will discuss. 

 

I am very much looking forward to the published book... I hope even more to be in the audience of the symposium! The link is below is you want to do a bit more reading.

Practices of making, collecting and re-enacting art and design.

This proposed discussion, book and symposium will discuss the following ideas:
