Trans-States Conference

The Trans-States conference took place last week an awesome event and a great way to show work transdisciplinary in the accompanying exhibition! There was a full programme of speakers and performances with the keynote speakers being Dr Richard Kaczynski, Dr Marco Pasi, Patricia MacCormack and Alan Moore.

The accompanying exhibition also had work from Cavan McLaughlin, Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule, Sara Hannant, Carlos Ruiz Brussain and Sasha Chaitow.

A Thousand Pent Passions 2015

A Thousand Pent Passions 2015 from Alexander Small on Vimeo.

One from the archive a short version of this traumatic video 'A Thousand Spent Passions' I made last year, some of you may remember it from the 'P/ss/ng into the Wind' exhibition. Jonathan Alibone pointed out a nice quote from the book Forests: The Shadow of Civilization by Robert Pogue Harrison which reminded me of this piece.

'All becomes indefinite in the Dionysian frenzy, for Dionysus [...] liquidates the boundaries of form.'
