Con/Cat {Concepts&Categories}


One of the key elements of work across the board is the fashioning of new concepts, categories, and conceptual frameworks.

Away from the many concepts and frameworks used and through which many study various phenomena. And towards a clearer understanding of what is going on with humanity.

This is consistent and perpetual work, across disciplines and fields I’m involved in.

I call it Con/Cat because I now deem it a ‘project’ in and of itself. Is it an ‘art’ project, or a ‘lit’ project–or a design-without-objects venture? I tend towards the latter, only because it has a function as well, and is part of the realm of cultural transformation… But one could argue otherwise… Anyway, the consciousness, the awareness that one is engaged in the constant reframing of how we understand the world, and phenomena within it, goes through the realigning of the conceptual frameworks. And: attempt one day at creating a glossary of the terms, how they are birthed and generated, developed, used and disseminated, and how they get applied across various disciplines and projects: one day soon…
