TASK 01: A weird object. Not weird because it looks weird or says something weird necessarily. The strangeness of the project is about how people behave in relation to it. How you actually use it or feel it or engage with it is uncertain, ambiguous, ambivalent, doubtful, circumspect, circuitous, or circumvented. Either/or, Neither/nor, Both/and. Between them lies the period of the transformation of the one into the other. Undefined, irregular, unsettled, precarious. What social functions will remain in existence there that are analogous to present functions? More or less modified, more or less transformed, more or less realized. I have now come to the end, for the appendix that now follows in the program does not constitute a characteristic component part of it. Hence, I can be very brief.
all responses + Astrid Lorange, Lawrence Giffin
TASK 02: “… nought but a cunning dupery of sense…” —Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, translated by Samuel Beckett.
Mónica de la Torre
TASK 03: Penmanship - Your running hand
The root of the word cursive is the Latin cursus past participle of currere to run.
Letters do not have to be relentlessly connected.
Your running hand can have rapid legible handwriting that is semi-joined or perhaps uses few, if any joins.
The choice about joining is yours.
