Creative Living: Create Dates

Create Date: New World Order Blockchain Exhibition

This week’s Create Date was at Furtherfield Gallery, following my interest in Blockchain tech and what it might mean for authors. The blockchain is the technology that underpins digital currencies which, depending on who you talk to, is set to enrich or demote humanity. The artworks in this exhibition – work by Pete Gomes, Rob Myers, Primavera De Filippi of O’Khaos, Terra0, Lina Theodorou and xfx (aka Ami Clarke) and others – are the kind that make the mind boggle. They imagine a world in which many aspects of life (reproduction, social organization, nurture, nature) have been mechanized and automated by…

They actually said sexually-transmitted disease and I have to say, I think that’s going a bit far. But I take the point. We’re all going to die. And we all spend a lot of energy avoiding or resisting that. Remembrance of Things Past I recently found myself at two memorials. The first was a sunny autumn morning in which our family planted a tree in our local park for Anne, my dear…

Go Creative… With Frances Moore Lappe

Last Time: Go Creative… With Billy Connolly “My daughter, Anna, used to say, “I used to think that hope was for wimps. Hope is not for wimps: it’s for the strong-hearted who can recognise how bad things are and yet not be deterred, not be paralysed. “Hope is not something we find, hope is something we become. “This is the first generation to know Read More
