…Now is perhaps a good time to resume our discussion about what we want to happen NEXT?
This is as far as we got:
“Listening to Firefox”
Sunday 15th May 2011
Manchester, UK time/venue TBC)
– Peer meet-up coinciding with FutureEverything festival
There are a couple of very interesting places in Manchester where we could all convene and, depending what people want to do, suggestions are currently Mad Lab (which is in the city centre, Northern Quarter) and Islington Mill (which is more industrial – about a twenty minute walk outside.)
I am imagining that we would eat some food together, have a chat and then have a plenary-type discussion where everyone would have the opportunity to share something relating to their own practice which has developed
since beyond the Lab. This format would provide a simple one-off opportunity to extend the peer environment we enjoyed during the Lab.
So – two questions:
Who would be intending coming to this? (Is it in your diary?)
What suggestions can people make regarding times, plan, preferred methods of communication etc.
I’ve copied this email to the blog so, rather than creating a huge email-list-tennis-session perhaps people could add their thoughts to the comment section beneath the post by clicking this link here.
Look forward to hearing from you all!
PS Here are some gems gleaned from the Lab discussions to refresh peoples memories:
*How can intimacy be scaled?*
*organise a situation where anything can happen. John Cage*
*shape-shifting and precarious labour*
*frequency spectogram (Julian Henriques)*
*beyond language and gesture*
*object oriented philosophy*
*databases and discipline*
*software culture – largest culture humankind has ever known*
*art as a methodology – art as action research*
