About the Ubiscribe PODs
We see design as the activity of making relation by carrying messages from one to another therefore it is about collaboration in its core.
we need certain critical mass of thougths to begin to think
It is important to allow thing to develop non-linear, also in terms of progress. going back, falling still are necessary parts of creating a collective journey -like the developing of a politics of technology
repetition is a powerful organisation and patterning device
one experiment will inform the nxt and the nxt
The idea is to let perceptions emerge from the constellations of personas. it is a joint process; and maybe - hopefully - the co-producers gain different perspectives. The actual mediation is ‘project management’ - but using the ‘techniques’ of (conceptual) art. And it is a constant negotiation. The hard part is to enter in the first place; as there are many (mis-) conceptions of ‘art’. The role of the artist is maybe to compare with a consultant (in the business context) or as a facilitator. The initial statement could be: ‘let’s make art together’ - very banal…
I feel that in this project there is a question of translation, not translation of words, but translation as an art.
I have been thinking often about situations, how they emerge and how they have to be handled with care. what i see in the emerging journey of a project is that peculiar strength one has to have to not rush before a situation naturally falls into place. It is easy to formalize things, out of the fear of a void, but maybe it takes a necessary void for things to come and to settle.
Signs gets more clear as they gets more used, language and structures as well? The use of structures is drawing lines that are shaping them.
We would say the more people are able to use the path, the better it is and the users are making it even better by using it and so on…
It poses a different “design-potential” to every participant if design equals participation or the participant’s usage of the structure determines the structure
theres a lot of romance trough messenger
The analogy (virtual space) to orgy is very interesting. But see, you don’t have to start by creating a (physical) relationship with everybody at a time, but you start slowly with small connections from which something bigger and more complex can emerge. I wouldn’t like the idea of organizing it
i think, for me, the crystalline process is about letting it all go, accepting that it can go wrong.
on project management; also relating to ‘what can be found / traced back in the result’: The basic result is on HOW to manage a process; in this approach the (art) ‘object’ is a tool. In ‘managing’ a project/process I try to emphasize that the process is not ‘fixed’ but relates to the ‘context’ and personas; in this sense a fixed methodology of ‘management’ probably will not find ‘new’ experiences.
creativity to me is a generic concept, which solves a task : “A product or response will be judged as creative to the extent that it is both a novel and appropriate, useful, correct or valuable response to the task at hand”
I think - and I quote Philippe Maresse/Acces Local – to generate ‘problems’ of a higher quality’. This makes a difference; as you see the actual ‘problems’ as potentials and not to be avoided - but embraced for the sake of ‘emergence’.
social capital is loosely defined as “advantages you get from knowing other people”
I would say that collaboration is necessary, but by no means neccessarily good. Collaboration is work.
We all relate to other people, previously made thoughts, works, ideas etc. But what interets me is foremost the way how you relate to the people you work with.
storytelling is a means of getting information of which new storylines and by that characters can be devleoped which are then feeded back into the real
I think though the energeticising experience is having left one’s role
yes, thats the collective dimensionof imagination that we are facing now…the virtual
Lets quote an old french poet: “you need new obstacles for a new intelligence” Henri Michaud
where here the chat is maybe more a helpful obstacle than a tool
it might introduce the right distance to forget about social conventions
i mean, when this is finished it’s 2 log-files
‘ … that particular strength one has to have to not rush before a situation naturally falls into place.’ This for me is already a question raised by this conversation: whatever the means of formalising dialogue, they should not, i think, aspire to anything ‘natural’ nor to anything that falls into place. Displacement, rushing and fear could be among the best dynamics to prolong exchange. In truth, I found all these elements this afternoon: the fear of not knowing how to ‘speak’ to one another, the desire to be provocative without offending, and the thwarted need for always more… this medium is absolutely dissatisfying - so much more than the telephone mentioned earlier - and as such proved, for me, a great, unfinished exercise in learning again how to ‘speak’.
