From Earth: Prototype A

“Working with the notions of narrative and game, a context is laid of linearity, rules, permissions and choices of engagement. The viewer/ participant/ reader should be place in a position of choice throughout.”

A symbol based on electrical earthing. Arrowed for direction. Enveloped for context.

Dissent and Dogma

Dissent is predatory. It seeks out and hunts down dogma. Initially tentative, it looks for weak links,  scavenging it’s way through the paradigm pack. But as it gets bolder, it becomes capable of bringing down even the biggest of the preconceptions, slicing through thick skin and armoured habit with a purpose that will not be denied.

Absolute values
Fixed views
Entrenched perspectives
Untested facts
Enforced decisions

It’s all prey.

Jochen Gerz


“The internationally renowned German artist Jochen Gerz (* 1940 in Berlin) has, with his works in public space, radically altered the relationship between art and viewer. His work transcends social boundaries, and creates new constituencies since it relies on public authorship. The individual is no longer just part of the public but is rather made part of the art. Gerz’ work anticipates the aesthetics of a democracy in search of its cultural dimension.”

Navigating the space between management and practice is difficult. After five years of CAS, I still seem to be no further towards realising a solution. Working with the CAS Associates, however, is becoming a highly catalytic experience.  The ability of CAS to function, engage and initiate has grown. It’s been sudden, and in ways that surpass expectations.

What this means is, that I am now on the back foot and having to begin the process of renegotiation all over again. The last few years have been spent with me controlling and micromanaging every detail of CAS, with the aim of directing its growth and structure. This was a method that was very hands on and detailed.  It’s also simply not possible now, and being in a position to step back and relinquish control of new activity is at once both unnerving and exhilarating.  Such a step back is only possible if you work with people you trust, and in that respect, I am very lucky.
