----------empyre- soft-skinned space----------------------
Yes gazing through technology is certainly an aspect of some of my works
this probably creeps in from my reading around the New Aesthetic but the
goals aren't the same.  There is a simpler level/theme (even 'site') that
links the works however, networks.  Both Best of Luck with the Wall
(variant) and Sculptures for Distant Places both use networks to see spaces
in impossible ways.  The former work shifts me more firmly into film
because it's a collaborative work and Frédérique's main medium is film.

We've both (Frédérique and myself) being talking about
deterritorialisation/reterritorialisation (sticking more closely with
Deleuze's spelling with an s) since it's been mentioned a few times now -
trying to unpack a little more how we feel Best of Luck with the Wall
(variant) deterritorialises a space.  For us I guess this occurs on two
levels; political, how politics is turing the US/Mexico border into a sort
of no-mans land, and technological, how the use of technology/seeing
through technology transforms the territory/space into something other than
geography.  We are not sure what that 'other' is precisely but its scale
(rapidly approaching actual scale) makes us think of Alfred Korzybski's
map-territory relation and Borges short story On Exactitude in Science.

There seem to be aspects of deterritorialisation/reterritorialisation in
all the works by the artist's this week (to greater and lesser degrees) -
would be useful if you could all unpack this for the list.
