I am very pleased to announce 2 SPEED SHOWs for upcoming Wednesday: ‘Awareness of everything’ curated by Lindsay Howard in NYC and ‘Fun is back!’ by Olia and me here in Stutgart. CU there! :) All SPEED SHOW announcements, documentations and archive at speedshow.net
The phrase “Awareness of Everything” is drawn from a recent essay published by Erik Stinson called Towards A New Theory of Creativity. At the heart of this essay, Stinson describes the role of the contemporary creative, and outlines the skills one must develop in order to ‘become creative’ or ‘more creative’.Inspired by this theory, the projects collected in Awareness of Everything embody these seminal skills, chiefly: humor, surprise, effective communication, extensive knowledge of a wide variety of cultures and forms, along with the proposal that “the internet has rendered originality meaningless as a strictly policed absolute.”
Visitors are encouraged to play, surf, copy/paste, tweet, blog, and email during the opening, an involvement which is built into the Speed Show exhibition format as an ode to the user’s active engagement, expression and move toward an awareness of everything.
For more information, please contact Lindsay Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
