question. a tin cup shared. Its a lovely image,Ive been watching the road
works out in country Western Australia, the workers there were treated to a
guest house with home cooking. I'm considering mead myself as there are no
lucrative mining companies near the Aurora Art space, so it looks as if it
needs self generating capital to create art residencies and projects.
I walked the city of Perth for 3 years.. trying to work out this question
around co creation and see if artists could walk with others like planners,
architects, philosophers, and people that just lived in the area.. i would
give others my camera. we walked i called it slow walking, after the
philosophy of slow food, and using a co action to help generate or germinate
new ways to collectively imaging a city growing through its colours its
textures and patterns.
I would read a text often from Christopher Alexander's" Pattern Language",
or his earlier work "a timeless way", profound writing. A text that many
planners and architects haven't even seen. yet brilliant.
we would meander around places in the city, funny how a city can grow
through you. Noticing the details, i call palletting. Can this contribute to
better place planning and as the community development people suggest place
I think We all belong on that page. Could we see ourselves as a colour
contributing to the ongoing painting of a place? being mixed with others to
form something new.
we need artists with planners, wasn't it Capra who said the whole is more
than a sum of the parts?
what a fantastic collection of thinkers this forum has generated.
Thank you so much. Id walk with any of you anytime.
