“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Here at CCA

Well here I am at CCA. It's a very creative place, buzzing with good things. It reminds me a bit of the Royal College of Art that way. Things are Afoot. Very interesting conversations with design students. They understand intuitively how tools can be broken or inappropriate, and that this is part of how we access them (or fail to access them). Talking with them is like talking philosophy in another key. Several people are making electronic things that are very provocative in a good way, one of them has to do with photosynthesis and I had a very interesting conversation about it.
