A project in which diamond dust is scattered over the gallery floors beneath the diamond vault ceilings of the architectural museum in Oslo, a former bank. The tiny diamonds will be spread by visitors, sticking to their soles, dispersing the dust throughout the building, streets and town, investigating ideas of economic inequality, de-luxuriation and commodification of capital. A musical composition will be composed which will appear as a hummed performance by the curators. It is a scattered score that needs to be assembled by the audience, consciously or sub-consciously. The resulting music will be installed in the spaces where the diamond ...

“Conflicts of interest” are said to compromise the impartiality of research, but what would it mean to be disinterested? Ethical codes warn us that researchers’ objectivity can be corrupted by a clashing set of interests—those of funding agencies, clients and publics, as well as researchers’ self-interest in professional advancement or personal gain. If the resolution of such conflicts might typically call for avoidance, recusal or disclosure, what would such strategies mean for the design disciplines and research on the built environment? What varied interests, expressed in the form of money or other manifestations of influence, do designers contend with? Who ...

The Black Hole video series was first created in 2015. The videos are site-specific installation works that build upon architectural relationships with such places as a gallery, cinema, or a home. By taking the pictures or editing videos, the artist creates an illusion of architecture. Black Hole 010 is the 10th piece in the series. It is characterized by change from creating the relationship between videos and architecture to the relationship between photos and physical features of the onestar press book.

This twelfth SDUK broadsheet examines the diverse means by which individuals and communities build lasting or fleeting bonds. Coinciding with the conclusion of Crossings: Itineraries of Encounter, the Blackwood’s 2021–22 lightbox series, this issue, BONDING, echoes themes seen throughout Crossings: migration, diaspora, borders, and archives. Where the lightbox exhibitions examine image-making practices, this SDUK issue engages print culture in new and recurring formats including visual storytelling, poetry, a letter exchange, and a recipe. Food is the source of many enduring cultural bonds, and thus one might be tempted to start from the gut: See Diasporic Dumplings (p. 27) for a site-responsive ...

This catalogue was published in conjunction with a group exhibition curated by Seth Siegelaub at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada in 1969. The exhibition took place throughout the university, with a number of works distributed or announced via the school’s communication’s facilities (university mail, a student newspaper, etc). As part of the exhibition, a symposium was held by way of a “conference line” telephone hook-up, with some of the participating artists calling in from Burnaby, Ottawa and New York. The catalogue was made available only after the exhibition was over. The participating artists were Terry Atkinson, Michael Baldwin, Robert ...

Northampton, MA One afternoon in May 2021, amidst rising temperatures and vaccination rates, I went to Child’s Park with my wav recorder. That week, I was feeling stuck and unsure of what to do with my free time and creative projects. I chose the park because it was a place where activity concentrated, which I had noticed during my frequent visits there that spring. Individual people and groups posted up on the grass at sufficient distances from each other to afford some sense of safety, comfort, and privacy, values which everyone’s body language and choice of grassy spot seemed to assert. ...

When the parasite sets in, small white bubbles rise up. They are warm, transparent and may appear anywhere. Cases have been documented in Boston, Cambridge and New York and the number is increasing. The appearance is not on the skin but on the sidewalks. New York artist Michael Rakowitz is the engineer of paraSITE, a temporary living space for the homeless. We may see homeless citizens every day, but now we see them unexpectedly, living inside what looks like a space age tent. paraSITE uses the warm air that escapes buildings to inflate and to provide night-time shelter. The cities and ...

As transnational extractivism, neo-fascist politics, and economies of abandonment and disposability expand around the world, can we facilitate situated practices of storytelling and worldmaking that enliven futures propelled by the forces of indignation, desire, and relationality? Despite Dispossession: An Activity Book extends an invitation to restore and reinvent bonds of reciprocity with the land, humans, and non-humans, while envisioning transformative and shared horizons. This collaborative endeavor takes as its point of departure the contested realities and public struggles of the dispossessed. Bringing together seven site-sensitive engagements, the contributors develop their artistic works, as well as speculative tools and activities, to conjure ...

Drawing on a series of performative, editorial, theatrical, and filmic resources, Dora García (Valladolid, 1965) generates events that question and probe the world around us. Participants in her works tend to get caught up in dynamics of enthusiasm and suspicion, in which any circumstance, no matter how abstract or microscopic, is raw material susceptible to becoming literature. In her work, reality is always haunted by the existence of a new story that can potentially supplant it. Her historical research on psychoanalysis and anti-psychiatry explores the inner vocabulary of dreams, and the figures of madness and delirium hover as elements of a ...

Pierre Huyghe’s contribution to dOCUMENTA (13) required some effort in order to be discovered at all. It was not just that Huyghe had chosen a decidedly decentered exhibition site: a composting facility located in the Aue-Park. Even after one had located the site, it was anything but obvious that it was art. One found oneself in a kind of overgrown lot: a pile of compost, sprouting growth, through which a walkway led—at times really just a beaten path, with algae- covered puddles. The hills were overgrown with plants and weeds. Off to one side, paving slabs were stacked; nearby, a mound of ...

Attempting to obey the signals that Gabriel Sierra sends throughout his exhibition might prove a challenging task. Reorganizing the lower level galleries of SculptureCenter, Sierra has created a series of site-specific works that disrupt the usual order of things. The labyrinthine quality of the space, filled with crannies and corridors, is emphasized through new cues and architectural elements. Slight adjustments paired with major reconfigurations call into question the meaning of the space as a historical brick-and-mortar building functioning as an active exhibition site. Encouraging modified behavior and altered movement, Sierra has unhinged the logic of the space, further broken down ...
