ABOUT SPURSE Spurse is an international collective composed of individuals with experience in a wide variety of fields. spurse has no (fixed) content or members -- rather it is a viral multiplicity that is continuously reforming itself as it becomes new projects and new events. In this, it is open to change, contradiction, multiplicity, tangents, infection, and betrayal. Spurse is interested in considering the public as that which must be continually constructed as a part of the invention of public space. In this we are interested in emergent forms of individuality -- swarms, crowds, the person, groups, and ecosystems.
