It ends this way:
I would propose not simply more design criticism, but instead the notion of design criticism being more specific, focussed and engaged, building on the work of a few still surviving publishers of serials focussed on graphic design (and its more immediate borders) and that are independent, attentive, invaluable, curious, spirited and constructive: The University of Reading’s Typography Papers (Hyphen Press), Rhode Island School of Design’s Visible Language and also The National Grid, Baseline Magazine, etc.
Look for Dexter Sinister’s new magazine titled Bulletins of The Serving Library!
Machine Project is a non-profit community space in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles investigating art, technology, natural history, science, music, literature, and food (more keywords here). In their Echo Park storefront, they produce events, workshops, and site-specific installations using hands-on engagement to make rarefied knowledge accessible.
Outside of the storefront, they operate as a loose confederacy of artists producing shows at locations ranging from the Santa Monica beach to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. They’re currently developing a year long project exploring how visitors experience the Hammer Museum.
Notably, they are organizing in February their very first online writing workshop intitled “Online Writing Workshop in Experimental Science Fiction”, with instructor Mark von Schlegell.
As told on their website, “the class will explore experimental science fiction through readings, discussions and writing workshops. Drawing on readings from the Book of Elijah through to Samuel Delany and beyond, the course will explore how science fiction as a genre works and how to push it to its limits. Students will also write and submit original sci-fi writing in an online workshop and receive feedback from their peers and from Mark.”
Isn’t that super cool? Check the other classes and workhops HERE !!
Friedrich Kittler talking about vectors in media technology, historical roots in the physical sciences and geography through ancient Greece, the Middle Ages, the 18th and 19th Century, World War I, World War II and Post War Western engineering sciences.
Kittler describes our return to Greek language in science as linked to that civilization’s unique origination of the natural sciences, and traces technology’s accelerated march forward.
The war is in the hands of the people, the war is in the heads of the people, the people lose their heads in the war, the war is over there, we all hold hands.
