Hiatus over … (Summer 2013)

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve posted on this platform. The lead up to Nuit Blanche in Toronto was intense and physically demanding - and following it I was carried away by other projects.

I am now embarking on a five month summer of work, research, experimentation, production, play, rencontres, and probably much more. I will be making my way through Chicago IL, Windsor ON, Tucson AZ, Paolo Alto CA, Montréal QC, as well as finishing my travels with a two month residency in Skagastrond Iceland.

Although most of the time will be spent research the possibility of walking through wallsI inevitably foresee other projects developing alongside. My plan is to use this page as a platform for thinking and publishing. I’ll keep it updated with images, videos, excerpts from texts, and much more. Anything that comes through my path as I engage with these different spaces and places with my body and mind.

I celebrate myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

-Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass (1855)

Hegelian dialectic is composed of three dialectical stages of development. There is a thesis, which gives rise to a reaction - > an antithesis. This antithesis either negates or contradicts the thesis - > from which tension arises. This tension is resolved by means of a synthesis.

To use or to avoid a historical model of progress and development is a difficult task. A part of me naturally leans towards mathematical equations and rationalized models of dénouement. History – the world – can be explained through forces at work. Interdisciplinary thinking moves me away from this – by combining models. Hybrids and monsters of structures used to predict. But a hybrid still holds traces from its past. So I return to the same questions. How do I make anew? Can I make anew? Am I bound by the past? Must I work within a model?  Is working outside of a model even possible? I try to walk through walls in part via research – computers, libraries, books, and people - traditional moulds of research. The things I know best. But what if walking through walls does not occur as simply as F = ma? What if walking through walls only comes after years of bathing in a concoction of lemon and baking powder?

The challenge is to produce differently.

Ask not what your Wall can do for you, ask what you can do for your Wall. (2012)
