landmark seizures // workshop #3 // saturday 18th may // report

Yesterday was the third Saturday Workshop of Landmark Seizures 2 (Aid &Abet).

With little need for exterior direction the colour of the day was settled as orange.

Herman Hase led conversions with Amy Feneck and DGGNGNTHRTH on community and use before the ghost of Joseph Beuys was summoned. Beuys’ recommendation for pre-death artists was to have sex with as many people as possible in order that they would have a significant mourning party at the time of their passing and have the best chance at fame. A number of thesis on this topic are currently being proposed at universities across the country.

The audio from this discussion is available at Archive.org here 

Video to follow.

Weathering the storm of technology complaints which we have come to see as the reassuring undertone of this entire project, Bad Timing got the Raspberry Pi to hold a stable operating system.

The Film Room Retains an Element of Mystery.

The Soup of the Day was chilli carrot and tomato.

One in every two bottles of “DGGNGNTHRTH N(e)TTL(e) B(e)(e)R” opens with the full force of the coming revolution.

Beatriz completed her installation (an animation is now on its way).

Thank you to everyone involved for making the lunchtime conversation the marathon that it was, and to Amy for proposing the question:

“How do we reclaim artists “usefulness” (from market?) making it a sustainable option for a way of life?”
