“Ice your towers then — a free duck never stands a chance.”

“At was divided, such screens aren’t the wharf, done!” “Offer level! Offer level!”

We keyed the storage; scrolled, savagely trying to find a joiner. Nothing. It kept shooting, getting faster… We should have known it was counterfeit.

“Abide when stove!?” “Always the accent nary a cloud?”

We braced for the onslaught.

Sometimes the glitch life {[(+)]} is unbearable — overall it’s advantageous and profitable (the indefinite extensions, the guaranteed material suspensions) but when a receptor set gets tricked and a customary fold dive turns out to be a sham crevice, it’s a full panicking jargon plunge — a chawmped syntactical purgatory.

All you can do is hum-poise the boundless white rabbit migraine.

But the yottagibberish overload eventually cools, losing engrossment without asylum...

Now at a thirtieth the speed: “Abut ccccolonel egg.” “Kkkkernal ppppatch?”

“Sniffffff jug maskkkkk please…”

The supramuffin fans come on and cakewalk is in site.

All in all, it seems better to have to glitch-stitch in a pleat than de-icon-plonk in a blot.

SITES IN USE




Recently, we were significantly struck by a quote, or more appropriately a paraphrase of a quote, from William Wordsworth: a great poet must create the taste in which their poetry is to be enjoyed. It reminded us of a more prosaic admonishment from a PR friend (when we were still involved in scenarios that needed such council): write your bio or someone else will and you won’t like it. For us the combination of the two created an overlap of significance, the linking of intensity and practicality — an incitation to be fully involved in your work — all of it.

The site of Austrian designer Johanna Gratzer typifies the point. All is attended to; one never wonders whether a perusal will be worth one’s time: the elegant typographic interplay, the obvious sensitivity of arrangement, the easy-but-assured pacing. It pulls you in at first sight, then flawlessly unfolds, all casually reinforcing the intellectually concentrated theory. It’s just so confident, gorgeous, smart and tasteful.

ORACLE



At the beginning of each week, we draw a single Tarot card and consult the I Ching. The Tarot card represents the person (you, me, us). The I Ching reading speaks to the nature of the scenario that you, me, us will face throughout the week. Think of it as protagonist (tarot) and plot or theme (I Ching). It is our opinion that neither the I Ching nor the Tarot are tools of prediction, but rather a mechanism to aid in self reflection.
        Before reading further, we recommend you collect your thoughts regarding the state of affairs inside your head as well as what you are involved with externally. Take precise stock of your emotional temperature and your goals for the week. The more preparation and detail, the better the results. 

So, of both the Tarot and the I Ching, we asked the following: for the coming week, what is the best advice for the engaged and sincere person?



Petite Reading
            One has to ready themselves at every possible moment for all things having their own time — an unfeigned but expectant shapeshifting. We are not speaking of client pandering, or general opportunism here but of an internal flexibility as concerns the fickle nature of inspiration, mood and technique. That, to materialize or engage or analyze a particular thing, one’s approach and method must be highly flexible as well as retain a strong archival memory of approaches. Perhaps “highly attuned improvisation” is the best way to put it. NB, not every aspect of this movement is going to be intelligible or palatable or attractive to close collaborators — it is always a long term thing. (Trust is of utmost importance.)

Complete Reading
            This week we pulled the Four of Cups. Shakespeare’s Hamlet said “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” The intimation both in the quote and in the card are quite similar: though you are temporizing resolutely and at a high level, perhaps there’s a looping not germane to further growth. There are many aspects worthy of integration, some waiting, in reach just out of view — you only have to turn your head a bit — with an open mind.
            Our first hexagram this week is #60, Limitation. Here is discussed the condition of limitation within the infinite. That is, that since conditions/contexts are variable/innumerable it is important to materialize a definition for your world(s). A definition that is shaped simultaneously by “loyalty”, “disinterestedness” and “intuition”. Our hexagram contained two changes this week; the specific notes are: reroute any anxious hesitation (strike while the iron’s hot) and do not force definitions/limitations, guide them.
            Our second hexagram, the one that suggests how best to meet the challenges (or the changes) is #24, Return (The Turning Point). Here we have a description of the fulcrum point of change from the darkest point to initial light (the moment just before the light returns). It is a time where potential is at its highest, but felt energy at the lowest. A time of tremendous opportunity (and experience key). A time to get ready and shape the power and light that is inevitable. NB, it seems wise to consider, a cycle isn’t a binary; they don’t exclude drift and mutation — they aren’t repetitions. They are arcs of difference that are intelligible and tangible.

When we were small, our grandmother would often take us in tow to confession. She drove a boxy black sedan (we can’t recall the model) but both she and the car were always immaculate. If it was cold (and not raining) she wore a fur coat and leather gloves. For us, the creaking of her gloved hands on the vinyl steering wheel typified her otherworldly remove. If she was in a good mood (as was often the case) she would allow us to bury our face in her side, in the cold fur, in the darkness behind her arm.

On a certain day, instead of the cathedral, she took us to the zoo. As far as we can remember the trip was unremarkable — all we recollect is a horrible detour into the arachnid pavilion.

From birth, the mere thought of spiders, so like disembodied searching hands, always filled us with a mild to serious anxiousness.

Inside the spider exhibit, as one would expect, it was quite dark. The walls, ceiling and all the fixtures were coated neatly in a matte black paint. The floor was a dark maroon tile and had a slight sheen. The exposition took place within a long zig zagging corridor. There was one large, glowing display per zig or zag — totaling about eight. There was no glass on enclosures where the spiders weren’t considered dangerous. Gesturing without speaking we drew her attention to the lights that dotted the space; there were webs around all of them. She assured me that she spoke with one of the guards, who said that the errant activity was nothing more than that of spiders common to the area.

Much design that addresses the possibility of a primarily unstable future does so in a dark way (black/gray and post-ruinous tech figure largely). To respond to a volatile view with color and concentrated energy is rare; the output of Polish designers Ania Rosinke and Maciej Chmara (chmararosinke.com) is of this buoyant latter sort. If the future demands that we eat only irradiated borscht, we sure hope to have our glowing steamy rations passed to us from one of Chmara.Rosinke’s jaunty mobile kitchens.

Petite Reading
        Harmony is really the only condition worthy of pursuit; but you can’t capture harmony, nor can you trick it — you can only match or befriend its primordial oscillations with a kind of rekindled innocence.

Complete Reading
        This week we pulled the Seven of Wands: A defensive position has become necessary; a challenge to your existing order has been enacted. It comes from distributed sources. It is quite possible you have been caught off guard.
        Our first hexagram this week is #25, Innocence (The Unexpected). It is said here that the best state for humans is to be innocent (like a child), as it puts one in direct accord with the larger motions of power (the earth, the human generally, etc.). Innocence here is defined as a sort of willful naivety — relinquishing to eliminate the distortion of ulterior motives. Not blindness just knowing that you ultimately don’t know, thus allowing yourself to be magnetic to harmony. Will you have cancer? Will you be accepted? Will it work out? You just can’t know these things — it is suggested to accept that type of unknowing. We rolled one change this week, of which the specific note is: if the time does not feel ripe/right for your intended endeavor, do not blindly push forward; wait for more favorable conditions.

From where we are sitting, there are collected (as a kind of decoration) three dried tumble weed type plants. The general structure of each is identical, a few stick-sized, stubby “trunks” that burst out into a cacophonous ball of branches and thorns. It would take disciplined attention to follow a single branch — so twisting and near-unaccountable is a single tendril; but ultimately the signal is easily separable from the noise. Tumbleweeds are plants whose self-reflexive and self-reinforcing structure allows them to roll, for far-reaching germination — but should a favorable condition not be found it has no other option to carry on the genes (like ending up in a studio as ornamentation).  

Like personality, a tumbleweed forms then detaches, borne away by a larger force to pursue some purpose. We are inclined to say that one main advantage we have over this flora is conscious reasoning. But this power as evinced everywhere comes with its own internal looping (no matter how intricate it appears). Perhaps one thing can be said about all of it, formation is one’s power and constraint.

The beautiful simplicity of linking is realized perfectly on artist/designer Daniela Grabosch and Ricardo Almeida Roque’s site. yyyymmdd.art is an archive and aggregator of art exhibitions from various galleries (a sporty but tight museum without walls type endeavor). A strong theoretical and intellectual point of view curates the selections (not without genuine solicitude).
        Though attributions are evident and permissions clearly displayed, there is an energizing spirit of autonomy here — an unfeigned desire to connect information under one’s own view — “I link therefore I am” rather than “I like therefore I am.”

Petite Reading
        Now is the time. Create. Be like the Spring and allow growth and production — enjoy and increase. Do not block flow; there will be other times for scrutiny and skepticism. Be the example of manifest generation!

Complete Reading
        This week we pulled the Eight of Wands. This is a card of opportunity, not a card of analysis (carpe diem? 🙄). Previous reflection may be utilized but try to let things flow out of you. Production will come from moving with energy, not detailing its mechanics. “Align yourself with a higher power.”
        Our first hexagram this week is #20, Contemplation (View). This hexagram describes how a great sage or similar worthy leader achieves such status. In short, by embodiment. Something like seeing a personage transcend themself, that is, experiencing a human manifesting their personality without guile or insecurity and with full intention — inspires devotion, emulation and appreciation in all that bear witness to them. This is true of the self as well; if you are open, honest and loving when reflecting on what you are, warts and assets alike, you are capable of giving off a light that will illuminate a path and object (perhaps even for others). We had one change this week; the specific note here is: whatever you are working on, do not be satisfied with a shallow version — follow the momentum deeply.
        Our second hexagram, the one that suggests how best to meet the challenges (or the changes) is #42, Increase. Here we have a declaration of what it means to lead: “To rule truly is to serve.” The pith is expanded on beautifully: “When one discovers good in others, they should imitate it and thus make everything on earth their own. If they perceive something bad in themself, let them rid themselves of it. In this way they become free of evil. This ethical change represents the most important increase of personality.” And again, this type of commentary regarding leadership and character formation applies not only to the external structures of people, but to one’s own internal hierarchies.

The reading of a sentence is something like a stone skipped on water. One hurtles along the surface tension of recognized structure, powered either by the writer’s intension or the reader’s attention, until they sink. Punctuation is like the spot where the stone disappears. Look. Another sentence started; the attempt repeated. Sink.

See us together here trying to make sense. Sink.

A sentence has a structure that attempts to carry meaning, but having meaning and having a repeatable, recognizable structure that attempts meaning is not the same thing.

Words like stones are ancient and composite. Sink.

Some people find stones beautiful and useful despite their depressive density. Sink.

Perhaps it’s like Gerard Manley Hopkins said: “This Jack, joke, poor potsherd, patch, matchwood, immortal diamond, is immortal diamond.”

But of course it might be that we are simply and senselessly synching runes of ruins.

Artist and designer Riley Hooke is superbly comprehensive — digital publications, printed publications, much curation, performances, editions, collaborations, a network — a covetable model for the marriage of terrestrial and digital practices. However, most of all, we admire the deep cognizance of site as medium, the understanding that a site is something, not just an anemia of thumbnails that weakly point to the real thing elsewhere. Most sites after all are like split level houses; you know what goes on before you even enter. With both Façadomy and the collaboration with Maria Petschnig there is the engendering of actual curiosity in the viewer. 👅❤️

Petite Reading
        For one to be exceptional, that is perform at a sincerely high level (whether as an activist, a familial head, as an artist, etc.) you will not be able to please your immediate self or your immediate peers. To be actually helpful (durable in your value to the world and self) you must accept the uncomfortable truth that this is a long term scenario. By its nature this type of life will often make you appear as out of step. This is hard to accept and bear; this is why so few people are remarkable (and actually helpful). To be remarkable you must reduce your world, accept all the various changes, whilst having a long term goal.

Complete Reading
        This week we pulled the Hanged Man. This card is a symbol of capitulation, surrender — but suggests a mature type of yielding, one that is nutritive. Here it is recommended to muse upon giving up to gain — excepting a certain change; it will feel like a loss initially, but ultimately is for greater flow and power. 
        Our first hexagram this week is #55, Abundance (Fullness). In a human’s world, there is very little without a pitch and a fallow; we have a very bi-polar existence (not that it is perpetually only between extremes — but, there is always a back and forth). It states a “condition of abundance cannot be maintained permanently.” Knowing this perhaps oddly it is “only a person who is inwardly free of sorrow and care can lead in a time of abundance.” We feel this suggests what might be called a light touch in all dealings. All is change (triteness be damned) — thus it is wise to be aware, but it is super-wise to be aware and not get caught up. There was one change which specifically states: “To bring about a time of abundance, a union of clarity with energetic movement is needed. Two individuals possessed of these two attributes are suited to each other... it will meet with recognition.”
        Our second hexagram, the one that suggests how best to meet the challenges (or the changes) is #62, Preponderance of the Small. There are many statements here of direct use; all center around the importance of maintaining a sophisticated, multilayered sensitivity if one is to be remarkable and not simply a follower. “Exceptional modesty and conscientiousness are sure to be rewarded with success; however, if a person is not to throw themself away, it is important that they should not become empty form and subservience but be combined always with a correct dignity in personal behavior. We must understand the demands of the time in order to find the necessary offset for its deficiencies and damages. In any event we must not count on great success, since the requisite strength is lacking. In this lies the importance of the message that one should not strive after lofty things but hold to lowly things.” “The superior person… must always fix their eyes more closely and more directly on duty than does the ordinary person, even though this might make their behavior seem petty to the outside world. They are exceptionally conscientious in their actions.”

The house we live in sits about a single story off of a hill. It’s high enough that the eastern facing window by the kitchen table is at eye level with the crowns of a white oak (scraggly and narrow in the foreground) and some sort of much larger ficus-type tree (behind it). On Saturday we sat here watching a gentle breeze animate the exteriors of the arboreal systems. The “ficus” looked like a large arrested explosion, that somehow was able to slowly undulate in its suspension, whilst the white oak resembled a bony arm with scraps of skin and cloth, gesticulating rigidly. Two things came to mind. Brice Marden drawing with a stick and the animation by Matt Henderson where a mirrored cube when dipped into a reflective lake takes on the reflection as part of its structure. We were left thinking that the factors for genesis aren’t necessarily complex maybe just innumerable. Another way, the “reason” for our being seated at the table on Saturday and the “reason” for the height of the house and the “reason” for the shape of the tree, and on, and on, is traceable (perhaps even reconstructable) but neither we nor our computers can count that high.

Petite Reading
        This week we asked a sort of ultimate question(s). Something like a query of cosmic, terrestrial and internal realism. We prepared by saying we understood really understood the human animal to be in a constantly difficult spot, besotted by blind corners, cut off from origins, with no access to ultimate meaning — but then also still able to feel joy and create beauty… We said we knew this with nuance and intimacy, but oft forget it and subsequently struggle for balance and energy. So, keeping all this in mind we asked our question(s): How do you do more? How do you engage the world more? How do you engage yourself more? And how do you do it with more constancy? It would be hard to receive a better reply. The short of it is this, persevere and persevere more, let the Creative Power flow through you like the natural force that it is — if you do this with responsibility (and without guile) to yourself and your surroundings, the world will be yours in great measure.  

Complete Reading
        This week we pulled the Nine of Wands. This card is a symbol of persistence within struggle. It is suggested to consider an aspect of your life in need of tenacity (all of it 😉). The card also suggests that this is a time where the perseverance will be requited. 
        Our first hexagram this week is also the first of the I Ching, #1, The Creative. There was one change (note at the end). This hexagram is perhaps the ultimate statement of the I Ching as a whole. Here is laid out the philosophical footing and substructural sentiment of the book. These are beautiful passages. The I Ching is a text aimed at guiding the querent (the seeker) to that which is most nutritive for them — a type of realism which does not sacrifice poetry. If you have the time take a few minutes to read it yourself. “According to the original meaning, the attributes [sublimity, potentiality of success, power to further, perseverance] are paired. When an individual draws this oracle, it means that success will come to him from the primal depths of the universe and that everything depends upon his seeking his happiness and that of others in one way only, that is, by perseverance in what is right.”
        Our second hexagram, the one that suggests how best to meet the challenges (or the changes) is #14, Possession in Great Measure. “The time is favorable—a time of strength within, clarity and culture without. Power is expressing itself in a graceful and controlled way. This brings supreme success.”
