The energetic revitalization of undaunted speculation




 
As humans we are always before and after — perpetually recovering and continually preparing. Those who are thoughtful and sensitive find it difficult to suppress the curiosity and anxiety that this awareness produces; and must articulate. Being post is sort of an acknowledgment of this difficult dualism — something like an attempt to reconcile progress and non-being. The architectural publication Post- is a wonderful manifestation of this disposition. It is intimate, casual, tastefully appointed — and dare we say intellectual. 👽🖖

Recently we came upon OOO (Object Oriented Ontology) and the philosopher Graham Harman. OOO is something like a terminal where the sweeping vastness of science, art, philosophy and popular culture are compressed for effective, general visitations. One of OOO’s most powerful exports might be the energetic revitalization of undaunted speculation.

I am an anonymous and pre-human flux




 
The work of Angus Tarnawsky is something like a study of the aesthetics of the signal — as in what happens on a path between a catalyst and a conveyance (in a gallery setting). Like all good, empiric, paired-down art (Graham, Sandback, Judd, etc.) Tarnawsky demonstrates that simple changes whether of viewer proximity or viewer interference, to simple conditions, cause alterations that are fairly complex. We see the metaphor, and have no problem drawing conclusions as to what happens when the conditions themselves are complex (and not in a gallery setting).

Thinking on reductionist notions brought to mind a favorite passage from Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenology of Perception: “…only at the cost of losing the basis of all my certainties can I question what is conveyed to me by my presence to myself… in my absolute concreteness, as I am presented… in reflection, I find that I am an anonymous and pre-human flux, as yet unqualified…” 🤙

Our consciousness is poised in a kind of limbo




 
As humans we can neither truly generalize nor truly instantiate; our consciousness is poised in a kind of limbo between the two. Swedish artist Karin Granstrand’s project Stuff, My Stuff, Come Along With Me is a beautiful consideration of this paradox. She’s compiled an index of found objects which ends up being something like a catalogue of novelty (which is as wondrously contradictory as it sounds).

Each mind is both an oracle of the universe and a ludicrously centripetal idiosyncrasy — and it is a matter of temperament whether this is humorous, horrible, interesting or totally invisible.

We are of this place more than we think




 
Film is still an amazing art form — don’t be misled by grotesque, narcissistic, “content” driven executives. There is sooo much beauty and information in movies, both old and new, intentional and unintentional. This is why it’s great that there are people like those at the Now Instant Image Hall in Los Angeles. It’s not that they’re keeping film alive or nostalgically celebrating legacies — rather they’re actively, lovingly, creating a dialogue using one of the greatest mediums this world has ever known. (Great site too.) 🎥🖖

We are of this place more than we think. We perceive our mind as separate from the glacier, from what’s inside the mountain, from the wormy apple, from the particles that wistfully blow through this or that. But psychology is biology; as well, it is physics — it is not separate. We are walking/talking glaciers, clothes wearing cyclones or whatever.

Our style of mind just necessitates obfuscation of such conditions. Oh and to be sure, there are other places and other styles of mind
