About

 

Heuristic #14

 

This exhibition will explore the concepts of Frecha, Perforation and Abrisamento, the three main thematic axes of The Atlas for Experimental Poiesis, an experimental atlas that is focused on processes of observation and their relationships to naming, language and conditions of place. The Atlas evolved through iterative process of engagement of different heuristics (general tools for discovery) in different sites over a period of multiple years. In addition to The Atlas for Experimental Poiesis this exhibition will feature key Spatial Poetries, the results of these site-based engagements that are unified through a continual attention to the process of identifying and collecting incontrovertible evidence of being, having been in or making place, poiesis. These take the form of cartographs, text-maps, situated readings, situated viewings. The Atlas, the Heuristics, and the Spatial Poetries are interwoven and connected back to a central object of the exhibition, The Manual for Experimental Poiesis for the Natural Historian of Event Phenomena, Both Spontaneous and Contrived. This Manual will be on hand for all current and potential Natural Historians of Event Phenomena.

Speculative Realism and
Object Oriented Philosophy

Graham Harman Portait

Presenter

Graham Harman

Occasion

Art and Architecture Club Port Talk
Goodenough College, London House
8 July, 2009 20:00

Abstract

In this talk Professor Harman will discussthe Speculative Realist movement (which he co-founded) and his own "object-oriented" variant of this philosophy. Speculative Realism was designed to challenge the excessively human-centered model of recent continental philosophy (that's the "realist" part) without falling into an unimaginative version of commonsense realism (that's the "speculative" part). In Harman's own object-oriented philosophy, the monopoly granted by Immanuel Kant to human-world interaction is replaced by a world in which the human-world relation is placed on the same footing as the interactions between cotton and fire or raindrops and wood. All things withdraw from direct interaction with each other, and causation can only be indirect or "vicarious."

Bio


Graham Harman is Associate Vice Provost for Research at the American University in Cairo, Egypt. He is the author of Tool- Being: Heidegger and the Metaphysics of Objects (2002), Guerrilla Metaphysics: Phenomenology and the Carpentry of Things (2005), Heidegger Explained: From Phenomenon to Thing (2007), and Prince of Networks: Bruno Latour and Metaphysics (2009). Forthcoming in 2010 are L'objet quadruple (PUF) and Circus Philosophicus (zerO Books).

Of Wise Fools and Foolish Sages



Title: undulance
Artist: jp kuzel

Author

Ole Peters

Occasion

Experimental Lecture
Goodenough College, London House
22 November 2007

Abstract

In this experimental lecture we explore the concept of universality and simplicity as the meeting point of the trivial and the profound. Why is there wisdom in simplicity? And when is this wisdom an illusion? We draw on examples of universality from various fields, including photography, film, painting, economics, literature, mathematics, and physics. Given the speaker's shameless bias, we focus on the intricate relationship between profoundness and triviality in the context of statistical physics. In this realm the renormalization group method provides an objective criterion to distinguish between the two. The method, brought to fruition in the 1970s, enables our understanding of universality in physics and was recognized with the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1982.

Broken Symmetries

Exhibitor

Katherine Bash

Occasion

Exhibition
Women and Their Work, Austin, Texas
August 9 - September 15, 2007

Abstract

As part of her commitment to uncovering new meaning and new poetry in the physical and mental places we inhabit, Katherine E. Bash presents five corpora of works that focus on the concept of symmetry and symmetry breaking in different realms such as landscapes, geometry and thought. In addition to her own research, she brings with her the works of two Investigators published by the ILPI Press: Echoes (for Robert Creeley) by poet William L. Fox, and Fragments of Symmetry by physicist Ole Peters.

Tracing the Wind

Exhibitor

Katherine E. Bash

Occasion

Project Exhibition Curated by Amanda Douberley
Upstairs Project Space, Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
March 31 - May 10, 2005

Abstract

"Tracing the Wind" features The Pinholes (2005), a video installation and text piece. Continuing Bash's exploration of natural phenomenon, The Pinholes captures an everyday occurrence that often goes unnoticed: images produced by the sun filtered through tiny gaps in tree's canopy. These subtly shifting beams of light create abstract patterns that at first dazzle the viewer, challenging our perceptive tools. The pinholes' glittering movement generates a disjointed rhythm without logic, except that of the wind itself. These chance effects make us aware of the structures hidden within organic systems, and our inability to control and comprehend the world around us.
