But writing, whatever its medium, is made of words, and words are bodily, made with the body and the breath, received by the body, felt with the body, and the rhythms of words are bodily rhythms. Ursula K. Le Guin http://www.ursulakleguin.com/WhatMakesAStory.html

Lygia Clark – A Casa é o Corpo: Labirinto Em seu trabalho, Lygia sempre busca a interação do espectador por objetos sensorias, como sacos plásticos, pedras, conchas, luvas, despertando assim as sensações e fantasias. Uma exposição que me chamou atenção foi a “A Casa é o Corpo: Labirinto” de 1968. Foi instalada no MAM – […]

The first documented apparition. And and a contemporary ABN-Amro communication.
Apparitional experience In psychology and parapsychology, an apparitional experience is an anomalous, quasi-perceptual experience.It is characterized by the apparent perception of either a living being or an inanimate object without there being any material stimulus for such a perception. The person experiencing the apparition is awake, excluding dream visions from consideration.In scientific or academic discussion, […]
The first condition, therefore, that any mythology must fulfill if it is to render life to modern lives is that of cleansing the doors of perception to the wonder, at once terrible and fascinating, of ourselves and of the universe of which we are the ears and eyes and the mind. -Joseph Campbell, Myths to […]

Some travellers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travellers. So the travellers go to the neck of the stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and […]

We can compare lock-in to scientific method. The philosopher Karl Popper was correct when he claimed that science is a process that disqualifies thoughts as it proceeds – one can, for example, no longer reasonably believe in a flat Earth that sprang into being some thousands years ago. Science removes ideas from play empirically, for […]
Big Data and Borges Posted on May 29, 2011 by gp “Jorge Luis Borges described an empire in which cartographers became so obsessive that they produced a map as big as the empire itself. This was so cumbersome that future generations left it to disintegrate. (‘[I]n the western deserts, tattered fragments of the map are […]
Paul Auster about Pinocchio: The superiority of the Collodi original do Disney adaptation lies in its reluctance to make the inner motivations of the story explicit. They remain intact, in a pre-conscious, dream-like form, whereas in Disney these things are expressed–which sentimentalizes them, and therefore trivializes them. in The Invention of Solitude, p. 131 adaptation, […]
the conversion of something from one form or medium into another : the translation of research findings into clinical practice. formal or technical the process of moving something from one place to another : the translation of the relics of St. Thomas of Canterbury.

by David Rokeby In his diaries, Austrian writer Peter Handke at one points talks about “formulation” as the beginning of forgetting. This aligned very nicely with my experience of the tradeoffs that occur when language is applied to phenomena. What is gained is the ability to externalize the experience as a token that can be […]
– Oh, Father, dear Father! Have I found you at last? Now I shall never, never leave you again! – The sea was rough and the whitecaps overturned the boat. Then a Terrible Shark came up out of the sea and, as soon as he saw me in the water, swam quickly toward me, put […]

Recursion is the process of repeating items in a self-similar way. For instance, when the surfaces of two mirrors are exactly parallel with each other the nested images that occur are a form of infinite recursion. The term has a variety of meanings specific to a variety of disciplines ranging from linguistics to logic. The […]

“art for art’s sake” according to Benjamin this is as maleable and stealable as the pure/abstract science. if you don’t make it political, it can be used by someone elese for an atomic bomb.
John Cage : “Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we ﬁnd it fascinating.”

leap frog: stick to one tool or set of tools for 3 years. because now there are too much money and resources and these make you keep changing tools and therefore solving technical problems instead of creative ones. stick to tools, create your own libraries and keep using them, as a language or toolbox. tools […]
when computer is in role, u have to place yourself in minimalism X maximalism. complexity is easy to produce with computer. sometimes the solution is in one or another pole. move back and forth between this poles and that is a kind of breathing of the work. poeme numerique, baltan laboratories, david rokeby

when you doesn’t smile after an artistic performance, you deprive the right of the audience to enjoy it. it is the responsibility of the artist to allow people to enjoy the work. avantagarde/edgy work can possibly make people feel they don’t quite understand it. by smiling, you help them. also often the artist doesn’t really […]
Crowded into cities, working in mindless jobs, and entertained by light mass media, we “live on the surface of life”, so that even “people who seemingly have “everything” feel empty, uneasy, discontented. via Emptiness – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
