thank you, franz xaver, marc, Stephanie, bringing in the introdution.
These are artists/directors whose work i admire much.
just to get a focus on discussion-
Stephanie's sum up
> -- -- In terms of a society, what will a Buffalo MNS node look like?
> And how will it be both similar and different to nodes in other
> locations based on ecological histories, economic histories and
> current resources?
> -- On the issue of resources, is it important to track the networks of
> funding and their impact on research as all these nodes emerging in
> different countries are dependent on different types of financial
> systems – academic in the U.S. vs government cultural funding in
> Europe and/or corporate funding for others
> -- In starting this network, what are both the risks and the
> possibilities in the anthropomorphic?
The last question also echoes Alan Sondheim's concern about human
enforced spores distribution (which i have forwarded to artist Taro and
hope he can join this conversation) and the endangered species.
-- further to bring up Franz Xaver's concern over nowadays information
tecnhology, to find some 'emotion' expression in algorithm ruling???
Hope the -empyre- readers can help us get the discussion sparks going....
