mechanisms of transformation...




“if we understand the landscape at the outcome of an action or a chain of actions, applied simultaneously or at different times, we can posit the designing of the landscape by deciding on the actions that will bring about the transformation of the existing landscape and generate a new one.


the designing of the landscape is converted into a designing of actions: we decide upon the mechanisms of transformation in contrast to an aesthetic and static final image. the resulting form is in part a surprise, inasmuch as it depends on the response of the environment, ever complex, and to some extent unpredictable. and the landscape thus generated goes on behaving, as did the pre-existing one, dynamically; interacting in time with all kinds of actions, to which it remains permanently exposed.”

Public Art “Master Plan”

Posted by ben on 22 Jan 2007 at 07:52 pm | Tagged as: announcements, upcoming events

Master PlanApparently the city planners, in their wisdom, have decreed that San Antonio requires a master plan for public art. They are now seeking the counsel of artists, architects, and designers to aid in the institution and melioration of said plan. To articulate your vision for the art schema to be adopted, convene at the Central Library Auditorium on February 13, 2007, from 7-9 pm. Parking validation and refreshments will be provided.
