“How could my grandmother have made millions from the antiquated traditions and ridiculous superstitions that I’d been so desperate to abandon?” An essay on the monetization of traditional Chinese medicine and failed promises of diaspora. “Aconite, My Roots,” by Henry Zhang is part of Resentment, the twenty-fifth issue of Triple Canopy, that is devoted to reclaiming—if not recuperating—resentment, especially as harbored by those who are used to fits of anger and bitterness being indicted as unproductive, petty, selfish, even pathological.
PublisherChristine Sun Kim2015
In Christine Sun Kim’s video Close Readings, she compiled a selection of film clips and invited deaf friends to provide captions providing possible additions to the films, resulting in a flipping of the typical power dynamic between filmic experience and deaf audiences, where the meaning of the film is dependent on how it is captioned. Here, the hearing viewer is subjected to the captioning of the deaf viewers. Sun Kim has provided us with 11 stills from this video, and a rekindling of our fondest memories of the CEL’s 2013 collaboration with her, “Seeing Voice: The Seven Tone Color Spectrum” ...
PublisherLondonon2019
Londonon, a collective of six individual architectural practices, traveled to Paris in February 2019, embarking on a field trip to celebrate, observe, investigate, catalogue and question humanity’s relationship with food. Our contribution to Oslo Architecture Triennale reflects on this trip, taking a detailed look at the remarkable impact that the lifecycle of food has on the shaping of our culture, geography and the urban grain of cities worldwide. We have used Paris as a paradigmatic case study of a city with a unique role in world gastronomy that has food ingrained at the very core of its being. The ambition ...
PublisherDroste Effect2019
This paper is aimed to invoke a different direction to the crisis that digital life and the Anthropocene are forcing us to face as humanity: instead of a speculative imagination about egress, it will propose an intense recuperation of the potency of our sense of being nature, an extension of Earth, in our most immediate present. It seems as if the shift that Western theory is making in order to think of an alternative to the irreversible damage we have provoked to our mother Earth over the last century, and the highly unstable and tormenting damage that adapting to the rhythm of ...

Art is, has always been, as Bersani suggests, a kind of alternative to “sex,” another mode of modulating the most intimate relation between soma and psyche. And the stakes of that “other” mode, those “other relational fields,” would be toward the articulation of forms of life divorced from the literal and symbolic traces of white hetero-sexist patriarchy. Our contention is that musicians such as Oliveros, as well as authors featured in this issue, have inherently understood and been working on this all along. The current political moment demands that we not only perpetually recall the radical orientation of “the experimental” ...
PublisherMeson Press2017
The way we conceive the human today is particularly affected by the shifts in media technology during the 20th century. Affect emerges as the new liminal concept that renders the body compatible in novel ways with the technology and politics of media. By ways of a relational reorganization the organic end technological life is condensed in a new, intense way to an ecology of affects.
PublisherFailed Architecture2019
Contemporary urban discourse relies overwhelmingly on visual representation. While it may be more effective both in conveying the actual appearance of a particular urban space and in communicating the intentions of the architect and the planner, this kind of representation leaves little room for individual interpretation and cannot possibly capture the full range of feelings and emotions that people attach to particular places. For this, we must also turn to the more immediate sensations of touch, smell, taste and sound. This episode explores the last of these sensations, considering what it means to represent cities and architecture through sound. Unlike the ...
This issue, produced in the framework of Okayama Art Summit 2019 (“IF THE SNAKE”, curated by Pierre Huyghe, September 27 – November 24 2019, Japan), focuses on the concrete conditions of embodied thought. From the assessment of historical attempts at grounding critique in the body to the exploration of contemporary issues surrounding situated knowledge, from the analysis of the aesthetic and political economy at play in the encounter with advanced human-like sex robotics to the ways in which algorithms are transforming our sense of intimate relationships, and from the ways in which cruising practices subvert dominant discourses on architecture and ...
PublisherEECLECTIC2018
An abstract illustration that represents different phases of depression, seeking to make the invisible visible. The word “depression” is not mentioned in the book. Therefore, the reader must find her own interpretation of the different feelings and emotions of the disease while diving into the illustrations. The aesthetic approach is consciously simple and minimalist. The techniques used are hand drawing, computer drawing, and 3D-modeling.
PublisherThinkbelt2019
If modernity was driven by illness, then modern architecture presented itself as the perfect cure. Architectural historian Beatriz Colomina traces the relationship between a new kind of medical image and a new kind of space.

What is the language of scent? Master perfumer Christophe Laudamiel and artist Sean Raspet chat with Anicka about our limited olfactive vocabulary and how to expand it.
HEATHER DAVIS talks about plastic in the United States, discussing its materiality, geography, and toxic histories. Combining feminist and queer theory with chemistry, geology, history, and art, Davis unpacks the constitution of throwaway culture, petrochemical industries, pvc, feminized male bodies, human endocrine systems, multidisciplinary collaboration, mealworms, and mermaids’ tears (also known as nurdles) in order to think through questions of justice, inheritance, and multispecies kinship.
PublisherNew Models2019
Founders of nonfood, Lucy Chinen & Sean Raspet discuss contemporary food supply chains and sustainable food futures, including the R&D of their own algae-based nonbar. Along the way, we address: monocultures, fear, skeuomorphic flavor, cellular agriculture, and the real cost of “all-natural.” (w/ Caroline Busta, Daniel Keller, @LILINTERNET)

It should be said that Baldessari’s penchant for depicting noses in his work extends as far back as 1965 with the conception of “God Nose”, one of the artist’s very few pre-1965 paintings to have survived. Here, with his onestar press edition, Baldessari conceives a book about a nose, with a nose, wherein the artist’s famed subject appears and disappears upon a series of pages, in one fluid sweep.
Musk is a fluid that is akin to the human body. Originally obtained from a gland of the musk deer, it was already in use in Ancient Persia. If dosed correctly, the odor it yields is perceived as enticing. An overdose, however, smells repellent. The neuronal reactions to which musk gives rise are similar in human beings and animals. But musk is also a stabilizer for other scents applied to the human skin. Numerous products take advantage of this quality. Due to its expensiveness and in response to animal-rights concerns, the most common form of musk in the cosmetic and ...

Fifteen one-minute songs and an identity defined by its own scattering. Steven Shaviro delves into Tierra Whack’s Whack World to show how it “overwhelms us with a kaleidoscopic variety of ever-shifting feelings,” making sure our senses traverse the contrast, richness and contradiction of a Web 2.0. self.

The intimate is one of proximity and familiarity. As a relational category, intimacy is a quality of closeness, attachment, and belongingness. To be intimate with someone or some thing is to have an innermost connection. Intimacy, or intimus, designates interiority or an inward sensation, as in under one’s skin. To intimate is also to commu-nicate with a hint, to imply subtly. is process requires a codified reception, a circle of acknowledgement and recognition. Intimacy not only designates issues pertinent to the discussion of home, sexuality, identity, the slippage between the private and public, but also relationships made out of kinship, ...

We spend 1/3rd of our lives sleeping and dreaming, yet scientist still don’t know exactly why… SleepWalks is sound artists Andrea Williams and Lee Sparks Pembleton.

The performances last twelve-hours, 9:00 PM to 9:00 AM, gently fading out in the morning as participants journal and share their dreams over breakfast. The goal of this long-term project is to study the relationship between sound and dreams in order to ...
Episode 10: Somatic Knowledge Sonia Fernández Pan in conversation with artist Ania Nowak about the intimate connection between feeling and thinking, different forms and manifestations of love, as well the ambiguity of care, the situation of women in performing arts, and female bodies where illness and disease could also be a social symptom and not only a personal condition.
How can our public outdoor spaces support degrowth? In the UK, The Countryside Right of Way Act (2000), campaigned for over a hundred years by The Ramblers, opened up vast swathes of private open countryside land to hikers travelling on foot. Scandinavian rights to land are older and more established, they shaped the outdoor culture of these countries. Hiking, foraging and exploring become ways of political manifestation in the face of rapid privatisation of land. The Age of Forage aims to raise awareness of the fruits of, and rights to, land. Foraging is a vehicle to remind us of the interdependencies between humans ...
This document in front of you is the result of a conversation over lunch, which took place in the early days of Corona in Berlin. Back then, we were simply wondering: in a time in which people are, either by policy or good faith, forced to restrict their spatial radius of interaction to a bare minimum, how do we actually deal with food? Not only in the sense of what we choose to eat conceptually, but how we choose it, literally. Where do we get it, how do we prepare it, and what does something essential like food mean to ...

This conversation with Rahel Aima and Ahmad Makia is the first of two (the second one is with Dena Qaddumi) recorded live in the event organized by Columbia University Studio-X in Amman, directed by Funambulist friend Nora Akawi. The first audio file above is the presentation of Archipelago in general and of the Levant series in particular as it originally preceded the conversation with Rahel and Ahmad. We begin the latter with the introduction of their online/printed platform, The State, and its subtle articulation between the politics of space and the politics of body. This discussion mostly focuses on the third issue ...

“I’ve come to understand that the enemy of health is neither pharmaceuticals nor snake oil, but dogma. The body is too unwieldy to fit within the schema of authoritative interpretation.” An essay on belief, biomedicine, and the pursuit of alternative modes of care. “The World is Unknown” by Carolyn Lazard is part of Risk Pool, the twenty-fourth issue of Triple Canopy, that asks: how are sickness and wellness defined, and by whom? What are the effects of these definitions, these acts of naming and describing?
