Dear Readers | Words to our Network

"Tomorrow is the end of the world. What is your plan for today? As Stephen Hawking predicted, we have no defense. Breathe in. Breathe out. Just relax. Focus on this very moment. This moment you are alive. Only this moment is real. You are right here. You are, in Heidegger's term, being-in-the-world. Live this moment to its fullest. Live this moment to its fullest. Feel it. Sense it. Learn how to embrace your anxiety. According to Kierkegaard, anxiety is but the dizziness of freedom. Anxiety is freedom's possibility. Whoever has learned to be anxious in the right way has learned the ultimate. Remember you will never stop existing. You will be forever. Because, just as Neil deGrasse Tyson observes, in fact the universe is in us, and we are not only figuratively but literally Stardust."

Urgent Publishing | Voiceblind with Miriam Rasch

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Insitute of Network Cultures. 

In between digital, human, and nonhumans publishers, the act of publishing becomes a deed of relations, activation, and remediation. How does the act of publishing deal with the urgency of the world, the unpredictability, acceleration, sustainability? In this episode of ARIAS Voiceblind, Miriam Rasch talks on the project Hybrid Publishing under the research group "Making Public". Miriam introduces the challenges and themes of the research and ways to exist in an ecosystem of publications.

Voiceblind is a new component of ARIAS presenting a short series of q&a’s with artists and researchers. The project aims to provide a platform for critical voices to be heard, paying attention to voices that unpack alternative research processes.

Imagining Scenarios Through Art and Design.
Edited and composed by: Gabrielle Kennedy

This book offers a unique look at the different faces of intersectional art, design and research. Bringing together diverse practices (artistry, design and writing practices and academic research) provides insight into how an artistic research process is shaped and developed. The kaleidoscopic convergence of these approaches is causing an exciting shift in thinking about how knowledge within the arts is created, feeds daily practice and vice versa.
