Exhibition at MART - pictures online ++

... well well well......
It was a rather interesting experience...
I am still trying to digest it all - trying to re-set my brain so I can share thoughts, ideas, reflections... yes, it's all suitably scrambled in my head and I need a bit more time to put things in order.
In the meantime, however, I managed to add a new section that deals with the installation to my site (http://www.darialoi.com/my%20your%20our%20suitcase/my%20your%20our%20suitcase.htm).
Also, I and others from the MART exhibition have uploaded a numebr of pics at:

quote found while surfing...

I found this at: http://lists.archivists.org.au/pipermail/archivists.org.au/aus-archivists/1999-June/001302.html

"Most Museums, most cultural endeavours, suffer from being subjected to too
much taste, too much elimination, too much selection, too much
specialisation! What we want (in museums and cultural records) is
all-sidedness, side lights, cross-references."

(quote from Percy Grainger in 1941 - quoted in the article "Parallax Error" by Naomi Cass, p. 52)

vroom at Melbourne Museum

oh, the power of technology to create an immersive wunderkammern? http://www.vroom.org.au/ PLUS an interesting article on the idea behind it at: http://www.vroom.org.au/pdf/peepshow.pdf
I am yet to decide what I think about this matter... exciting idea and possibilities on one side... something that "still doesn't gel" on the other...
so I wonder... this might not have anything to do with technology itself but on how it's employed...

Wunderkammern at the Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe, Germany

In this museum there are some examples of wunderkammern, but the site of the museum (www.landesmuseum.de) is in German so it's rather complex (at least with my poor German) to unpack it... but some nice bloke/sheila has some pics online. Check http://rubens.anu.edu.au/raid4/europe.0602/germany/karlsruhe/badisches_landesmuseum/wunderkammern/

Mystery Business

This is a very interesting elective by Professor Clive Holtham.
In the brief I read : "It is for students who are comfortable with ambiguity, who are attracted to uncertainties rather than certainties. Students are active co-producers of original knowledge, rather than recipients of pre-packaged knowledge." It was great and comforting to read these lines...

it made me recall how hard I had to battle to be able to use the term "ambiguity" in my PhD. For some reasons one of my supervisors felt that the term had a manipulative, obscure and negative connotation... In art and design this term is far from being considered negative upfront (unless of course you mean it that way) while from her perspective (management) it was quite risky and possibly even inappropriate. So... in the end I had to place a footnote to specify what I meant by ambiguous and ambiguity, clarifying I did not have any obscure, manipulative or negative intentions... bizzarro one might think... but it took just a footnote to solve the issue...
oh! the power of teddy bears!!!

Daria's Lunch

Over the past few months I conducted a number of workshops under the name Daria's Lunch where participants have been using my suitcase to unpack the notion of collaborative practive through informal conversations and creative endeavours.
This has been to date very effective and pleasant... next week and the final PART 3 of the series is approaching - I am truly looking forward to see what we will make of it!
