theBook (ongoingProgress)


The book is made with the purpose of documenting my work and making implicit my thinking as well as artistic process. It is version 0.2 of a book that might never be finished, as it –much like the process that it documents – will be subject to constant revision.
It also serves as a conceptualizing framework for what I refer to as Po[e]litics, and for the artistic research project ‘Po[e]litics from the Anthropocene’. Po[e]litics can be thought of as a Portable Philosophy Format, a .ppf with variable compression.
Po[e]litics sometimes takes the form of annotated poetry (illustrated for example in ‘Oedipus Reaches Maturity’ (below)), but it is not example_annotatedpoetrysolely a concept relating to the written word, but rather an aesthetic container for mixed media hyper-narratives, which can be read in any order as well as on various levels of depth. It is an attempt at constructing a language capable of addressing the complexities of contemporaneity: A trans-medial language appropriate of the anthropocene; A language for the networked human.

The book is available for download/reading here
I make it available like this because I believe strongly in the sharing of information, it is however a work intended to be experienced as a printed book (and it does in fact work much better in that format), so if you would like one drop me an email and I can send you one for the price of the printing cost.

[Yes I know about the typos, some are intentional, the rest have have been corrected in v0.3 && v0.31(which is currently only available as print but will be available online shortly(ish)) ]
