Methodology

"For me, the way you get stuff done is just as important as the stuff you do. In fact, the way you get stuff done often IS the stuff you do. Over the last 11 years I've developed quite a few approaches and methodologies to working with people and making stuff. Below you can find a bit out about some of these (words with lines underneath have links to more info/ to projects where I've used these methodologies).

 

Thematically most of these involve:

"Mess Making As Social Glue"

"Mapping" (connections, skill, knowledge, mistakes )

"Commoning through craft"

“I think therefor I am... not that wax” or “From Abstract to Object” (physicality of abstract ideas)

Practical techniques I use include:

Collaborative sandwich making

Den creating and destroying (and creating again)

Manifesto Making (and  manifestos about making)

Archive building / destroying / re interpreting

The Social Practice Surgery

Mapping (connections, skill, knowledge, mistakes )

Walking

Vocal exercises

Off with their ids (non hierarchical ways of working), 

Cutting up high value bank notes

Throwing parties

Founding an international art and activism prize

and asking people to close their eyes and blow bubbles quite a lot (although not simultaneously...yet)"
