Notions of Space, Ideas on Ownership

by

Really interested in the work of Minna Pöllänen, a Finnish artist living and working in London and Helsinki. Pöllänen’s practice combines and moves between photography and sculpture. Her thematic focus is on the notions of landscape, politics of (public)space and site-specificity. It’s funny, spare, pointed and beautiful. Ice and fresh water is a witty look at […]

Illuminating Mercy

by

I love the “new” Pope. I love it when capitalism puts it’s money where it can do some good. I love it when beauty helps us see truth. All of this goodness came together in the light show, titled “Fiat Lux (Let There Be Light): Illuminating Our Common Home” projected on the famous facade of […]

My Goals for ThoughtVectors / Why I signed up

by

[Drafted in mid-2014 during the first part of the Summer 2014 UNIV 200 course, just publishing now…] When I first heard there would be a summertime MOOC which would study the works of Engelbart, Bush, Lickleder, and others, I was very excited and searched for more details.

Life Happens / Continuing

by

My last ThoughtVectors post was in late June 2014, and I have been silent since.  Family activities and vacation trips, work, summer and fall activities, children’s homework and band/sports activities, etc. have taken priority over “finishing” the course.  This is just as it should be: it is very appropriate for my family life and work … Continue reading Life Happens / Continuing
