The Hand 

THE HAND I would like to formally propose The Hand as a course that I can teach, and which, more importantly, should be taught. It'll no doubt take many hands pushing leavers and pulling buttons to make it happen. All the more reason. Hyperallergic has a brief entry on the matter that of course, barely …

Thinking Through Drawing Symposium: Practice Into Knowledge 

Some reflections on coming together... "...the possibilities of what drawing is and the contexts in which it flourishes. Farthing engaged in something of a taxonomy of drawing, pushing the audience to consider the “outer extremities” of the practice, as Burton describes it.

Minimal Action 

In the spirit of this blog—of attending to things in their birthing pains rather than as polished certainties—here's a video study, in preparation for a series of projects in the works on using minimalist performance as a way of researching our embodied engagements with the cities we inhabit. The working question was how we can …

Drawing Lab 

One of the things that always comes up when talk turns to the losses we suffer around education—our regrets at being of a certain age without having brought certain things with us—is drawing. (Languages being the other big one.) It has a kind of inevitability, just as a conversation about waning literacy will eventually turn …

Mediated Earth: Footprints & Shoemaking 

You are as quick as a spartan hound to pick up the tracks of the argument... —Plato, Parmenides 128b-c The question of footprints, of the traces we leave in our contact with the world, is one that runs through the history of philosophy of education. How do we know where we have been? And what …

They Roam the Earth Again 

Yesterday was Three Kings Day, and for me it was an opportunity to revisit and reflect on a project I worked on last year. El Museo del Barrio commissioned the artist Polina Porras Sivolobova to create replacements for the Three Kings puppets they had used for decades in the Three Kings Day Parade. My primary …

Mediumism: The Art of Education 

As someone who takes the aesthetics of education seriously, I was pleased to be asked to respond to René Arcilla's new book, Mediumism. The Panel is this evening, and should prove interesting. In part because Arcilla confounds the line concerning aesthetics and education. If Art Education, at first glance, is simply about the teaching of …

They’d Draw on Anything… 

Was just watching this great clip on the beginnings of visual thinking. Of course, I think that, like most, he over emphasizes the visual element, rather than thinking of it as a spatial and moving set of processes. But that's for another day... However, I love thinking in terms of generations instead of years. It …
