[-empyre-] rehearsal of a network - [week 3] Dear all
It has been an amazing week 2, thanks for all your contribution... I
should emphasize that for sure all threads from week 1&2 can be continued.
thanks for Nitasha Dhillon's posting knowing she's much between borders
at the moment. I was happy to meet Nitasha this past March at her
studio in Buffalo U. Her passion for organizing/engaging, her persuasive
articulation renew my hope for a generation lost in cellphone social
Nitasha's report on "Decolonize This Place" , the physical/analogue
occupation, the bodies en masse that count, serves us well to get into
the third week of 'rehearsal of a network'. for this third week
"post-Net network imagination", we have a great list of guests who are
artists, activists, researchers, cultural practitioners, economists,
ultimately the forefront DO-ers, persistently engaging in social (as a
society) /political network build up..
We also hope all empyrians can jump into the postings and voice your
activities and comment.
I appreciate much the lively interaction you all put in!
