New & Next

From literature to museum work. From artistic intervention to university engagement. Within fields and disciplines and beyond: crossing all lines. Post- and Trans- and Neo-disciplinary realms. Creating new forms. Generating new systems. Going a-grammatical: that is, knowing the ways things function, the grammar of things, and fashioning innovations. Beyond the names.

At the vangarde: no shame in saying–and yes, I do think there will always be one or many vangardes at play. Searching and finding new ways. Initiating and implementing. Streets-smarts and other types of smarts to galvanize, and forge forth and make things happen. Non aux noms. New territories and new names. New worlds and next worlds.

At many levels–from the atomic to the macro–in many spheres of practice, in a host of disciplines, with various segments of society and in different geographic locations. Transformations with intellectual rigor and genuine desire and systemic considerations and always an authentic canvasing of possibilities.

Territories without names!

The place to be. The place to till.

Always here. Always comfortable.

That would be the name of the big show: Territories Without Names. The grand divan.

Content and comfortable in these fields. Happy to wander and map them. Happy to make them. In fact, maybe my only home.

This website is a mini-map of sorts. A simultaneous mega- and micro-mapping, I should say. 

Wanderer and Mappist of those fields…

Trouveleur and traveler. Neo-Dandy Neo-Dervish. New poet of a new world…

An anarchistic ethos and a savoir-vivre combined. Along with the personal mode of being and circulating. Navigating it all. Distant and hermetic, yet all-in too, somehow. The vangarde. Fashioning newness, and enjoying what there is, to whatever extent possible. A way of being and becoming. (Best way to dig into it: navigating this site, and then from there onwards…) New and next realities.
