Our mission is to co-create extraordinary art that connects with contemporary audiences providing innovative, engaging and inclusive digital and physical spaces for appreciating and participating in practices in art, technology and social change. As well as finding alternative ways around already dominating hegemonies, thus claiming for ourselves and our peer networks a culturally aware and critical dialogue beyond traditional hierarchical behaviours. Influenced by situationist theory, fluxus, free and open source culture, and processes of self-education and peer learning, in an art, activist and community context.

BlankOwnership of the Soul & Casting out the Genie - Genius

I have read the "The Devils of Loudon", and Possession of one's soul was a =
dominant factor in the premodern world. Including abuse by most of the powe=
rs that be, whether by the state of religious institutions. Times don't cha=
nge much. Exorcists and religious functionaries were called upon to drive d=
emons and other spiritual beings out of persons, while oracles and prophets=
chose to summon such beings to come to them. In the New Testament, Christ =
is frequently called upon to drive evil demons and "unclean spirits" out of=
people. It was a widespread belief in the ancient world that these spiritu=
al beings were responsible for the physical and mental illnesses of most pe=
ople. Creative people were thought to be possessed by a genius (the word co=
mes from the same root as djinn or genie) or tutelary planetary "daemon" wh=
ich provided them with their wisdom. When people were acting "not like them=
selves," it was assumed that their soul had been expelled and that their bo=
dy was now possessed or owned by some other spiritual being. (Garrett 1987:=

Re: Liminality


Hello Manik,

Shucks is the order of the day...

I saw your project on free manifesto - looked good. Even though there are
language differences between indivuals on the list, I am sure that generally
everyone will try to understand more because of this fact - cleverness is a
distraction/understanding takes time...

much respect from marc
