Forthcoming Materials of Practice: A Symposium in Two Halves

A symposium.

"Our current problem seems to be whether or not the definition of science should include such manifestations as herb concoctions, venerated emblems, sand-painting, legend-telling, ceremonial chants and so on. There's a distinct methodology to each of these pursuits. Experimentation, observation, identification. Nature is systematically investigated, its data analysed and applied." Ratner's Star, Don DeLillo

A one-day symposium convened by me, co-convened by Pat Fisher and organised by Deborah Jackson. Keynote speakers Ross Birrell, Maj Hasager, Craig Mulholland and Nina Power present, debate and speculate on one Forthcoming Material of Practice of their own devising. The morning session of the symposium takes place at Edinburgh College of Art, where the four speakers make their presentations. The afternoon session takes place at Talbot Rice Gallery where each speaker leads a focussed charette for twelve participants.
