value and alchemy in contemporary art

The topics set forth during these kinds of meditative acts allow for a gentle interplay between a free flow of thought and teacherly instruction, the affectionate chastising of others’ work and the occasional bite of lovers: “You can stop talking now.” Interludes of silence are comfortable moments of concentration, the hands in motion while we […]

VILEM FLUSSER

A Text on Design [PDF] Further studies on Flusser can be found here. Flusser’s essays are short, provocative and lucid, with a resemblance to the style of journalistic articles.
