Notes about presentations
Lessons and moments that fold back into the practice. Generated through reflective practice but articulated because of the PhD. Gifts that are brought back to the practice.
Sequences, Clusters, Lists.
Outputs and things that are generated. Doing things. Making things. Strongly grounded in the medium, the format, the the quantity.
How I am working, what I am doing, things I am learning while working
Ways of working
Side Notes / notes in margins
A place off to the side for ideas and notes. Things that influence the main narrative.
Agitating from the sidelines. (relates to projects, not just process)
Phases are useful.
Phases are also frequent.
Projects have hard dates and deadlines that relate to contracts and financial years.
Then there is an overlay of phases which give the project its own characteristics.
How to commence? how to continue? How to sustain? How to pause? How to wrap up?
How to plan it out and how to look at it all at once?
1000 things and sequence of slides, one a second. This makes it impossible to include text, unless text holds over multiple seconds. Phases are therefore defined by the text durations.
Phasing in the sequence of 1000. As a way to extend the time that any one thing is up and visible
List all the things I can think of that relate to a particular thing in one way or another.
Get to know something that is not yet familiar.
Describe something without overlaying too much.
Describe a things potential without limiting its usefulness through being too specific.
An overlay of ideas, on readings, on buildings.
Discern What Matters
Over time, discern what matters.
Locate the middle as a productive space
Build up a set of infrastructures and systems that enable this
Latency / Latent
the state of existing but not yet being developed or manifest; concealment: tension, and the latency of violence, make the greatest impressions.
arranged or existing for the present, possibly to be changed later.
the action of providing or supplying something for use: new contracts for the provision of services.
Ways of thinking about it
How it gets organised seems to be the question —
What are the initial conditions?
How to formalise it while also allowing it to be open ended?
The built form makes the site accessible and functional in an immediate way.
Designing interiors, spaces and objects that support and enable creative production.
Interior infrastructures and support structures for the Creative Industries — Creative Infrastructure.
Support Structures and negotiation
It is what it needs to be
Process and production are what it is.
It's legible for what it is. Not what it aspires to be.
It's not an image of something else. It is what it is.
This is being generous.
Process is the same as project
I am noting that as I describe and articulate process, production, the doing of this work, the qualities of this and the characteristics of this are also in the projects.
Produced through process
The thing is of its process and of its production.
What I want to make
