Am pleased to hear about this event (via the new Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies at Warwick), after having participated in the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef in 2008. This time, it looks like there will be less crochet, more talk, which seems equally exciting!
‘Knotting in Common’ will take place on 15 June 2012 at Goldsmiths’ New Academic Building (Room 305) between 11am-1pm. A flyer can be downloaded here here.
The organisers recommend that you read this article by Bruce Sterling, entitled ‘An Essay on the New Aesthetic’ in preparation…
Here are a couple of photos from the 2008 sessions:
