Bite the Hand that Feeds You
Bite the Hand that Feeds You
Food is a precious commodity, it has power, it can be a protest or an act of care, it can control, it nourishes us not just biologically, but socially and culturally. PhotoIreland brought together artists and professionals to question various aspects of food production and consumption, sometimes to highlight an issue,

Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples by Linda Tuhiwai Smith (1999): A Review by Mamoon Bhuyan - Doing Sociology
Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples by Linda Tuhiwai Smith (1999): A Review by Mamoon Bhuyan - Doing Sociology
‘Research is probably one of the dirtiest words in the indigenous world’ (p.1). Linda Tuhiwai Smith, a leading decolonization theorist, centre-stages the power relations within which research on indigenous people is conducted. In her work, Decolonising Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples (published by Zed Books in 1999), Tuhiwai Smith stresses how non-indigenous researchers can engage […]

Post-Performance Future Marie de Brugerolle - delpire & co
Post Performance Future est une recherche artistique pionnière voyageuse (2012 à 2022) menée sous la direction Marie de Brugerolle, historienne de l'art et commissaire d'exposition. L'ouvrage retrace ces 10 années avec plusieurs générations d'étudiants et de très importants artistes de la scène de la côte Ouest américaine. Workshops, séminaires, expositions clefs et discussions avec Andrea Fraser, Paul McCarthy, Agnieszka Kurant, Cally Spooner, Dora Garcia, Julien Bismuth etc. ont irrigué la recherche de Lyon à Los Angeles, de Pays-Bas en Espagne...Le concept de post-performance questionne l'impact et l'héritage de la performativité sur les arts visuels. Il dévoile les artistes à l'entrainement et au travail. Un travail précis qui du corps, à la voix, à la manipulation des objets à la lecture des textes engage un professionnalisme loin de l'idée de l'impulsion ou de l'improvisation.Il permet la naissance de nouvelles notions et leur mise en pratique par la performance (conséquences esthétiques et politiques) depuis les années 1970 par l'investigation méthodique et la mise en prospective. Il retrace et dépasse une histoire actée par une généalogie americano-européenne de la performance.L'ouvrage montre et expose la genèse de performances et de concepts nés pendant la recherche et aujourd'hui utilisés dans le monde de l'art par ceux qui ont suivis cette expérience durant leurs études et leur recherche. Les contributions de Post-Performance Future. Method/e ont été écrites par Jean- Max Colard (critique d'art et commissaire d'exposition, responsable du service de la parole Mnam Centre Pompidou), Andrea Fraser (artiste, professeure UCLA), Rubén Gallo (Professeur en langue, littérature et civilisation espagnole - Princeton University), Dora Garcia (artiste, enseignante et chercheuse Olso Akademy of Fine Arts), Keywa Henri (artiste), Agnieszka Kurant (artiste, enseignante), Jérôme Mauche (écrivain, poète, éditeur et professeur Villa Arson, Nice), Margherita Morgantin (artiste, enseignante Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Milan), Ingo Niermann (romancier, écrivain, artiste et professeur (Haute école d'art et de design de Bâle Institute FHNW Art Gender Nature), Cally Spooner (artiste), Italo Zuffi (artiste, enseignant (Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Milan).

Théories du design Claudia Mareis - delpire & co
Théories du design Claudia Mareis - delpire & co
En introduisant les principales théories du design du XXe siècle, Claudia Mareis esquisse des approches et des modèles qui postulent une notion élargie du design, en connexion avec les sciences humaines et techniques, ainsi qu'avec les enjeux d'une société en mutation. Le design est omniprésent. Il englobe aujourd'hui bien plus que le simple embellissement esthétique de produits de l'industrie de consommation. Les théories du design thématisent plutôt le caractère fondamentalement « fabriqué » de notre réalité et ouvrent ainsi un champ de recherche interdisciplinaire qui va au-delà des définitions traditionnelles du design en tant que pratique artisanale ou industrielle. Cet ouvrage de Claudia Mareis introduit – en partant du design lui-même – les principales théories du design du XXème siècle. Il esquisse des approches et des modèles qui postulent une notion élargie du design et établissent des interfaces interdisciplinaires avec les sciences humaines et techniques, mais aussi avec les questions de société.

Une anthologie pour comprendre les Low Tech Clément Gaillard / Philippe Bihouix - delpire & co
Cette anthologie rassemble et présente un ensemble de 29 textes publiés entre le début des années 1960 et aujourd'hui consacrés aux technologies appropriées et au low-tech, pour la plupart inédits en français ou devenus introuvables. Elle montre qu'il existe une profonde continuité entre les recherches sur les technologies alternatives et les applications directes de l'énergie solaire après le premier choc pétrolier et les préoccupations actuelles relatives à l'autonomie énergétique et l'autosuffisance. L'anthologie est décomposée en quatre parties qui traitent respectivement des technologies appropriées et de leur histoire, des méthodes pour concevoir low-tech, des applications directes de l'énergie solaire et des techniques alternatives pour capter et économiser l'eau dans un contexte de sécheresse grandissante. Elle s'adresse à celles et ceux qui sont intéressés par les low-tech et les énergies alternatives, qu'ils soient ingénieurs, historiens, économistes, designers, bricoleurs ou simples curieux.Avec des textes de : Steve Baer, James T. Baldwin, Cédric Carles, Thomas Ortiz & Éric Dussert, Robert Chareyre, Farrington Daniels, Kris De Decker, Peter D.

Bicycling Science, Fourth Edition a book by David Gordon Wilson, Theodor Schmidt, and Jeremy J. M. Papadopoulos
Bicycling Science, Fourth Edition a book by David Gordon Wilson, Theodor Schmidt, and Jeremy J. M. Papadopoulos
An updated edition of a classic: an indispensable companion for a new era in cycling.The bicycle is almost unique among human-powered machines in that it uses human muscles in a near-optimum way. This essential volume offers a comprehensive account of the history of bicycles, how human beings propel them, what makes them go faster--and what keeps them from going even faster. Over the years, and through three previous editions, Bicycling Science has become the bible of technical bicycling not only for designers and builders of bicycles but also for cycling enthusiasts.After a brief history of bicycles and bicycling that demolishes many widespread myths, this fourth edition covers recent experiments and research on human-powered transportation, with updated material on cycling achievements, human-powered machines for use on land and in air and water, power-assisted bicycles, and human physiology. The authors have also added new information on aerodynamics, rolling drag, transmission of power from rider to wheels, braking, heat management, steering and stability, power and speed, and other topics. This edition also includes many new references and figures.With racks of bikeshare bikes on city sidewalks, and new restrictions on greenhouse gas-emitting cars, bicycle use will only grow. This book is the indispensable companion for a new era in cycling.

How Infrastructure Works: Inside the Systems That Shape Our World a book by Deb Chachra
How Infrastructure Works: Inside the Systems That Shape Our World a book by Deb Chachra
A new way of seeing the essential systems hidden inside our walls, under our streets, and all around us Infrastructure is a marvel, meeting our basic needs and enabling lives of astounding ease and productivity that would have been unimaginable just a century ago. It is the physical manifestation of our social contract--of our ability to work collectively for the public good--and it consists of the most complex and vast technological systems ever created by humans. A soaring bridge is an obvious infrastructural feat, but so are the mostly hidden reservoirs, transformers, sewers, cables, and pipes that deliver water, energy, and information to wherever we need it. When these systems work well, they hide in plain sight. Engineer and materials scientist Deb Chachra takes readers on a fascinating tour of these essential utilities, revealing how they work, what it takes to keep them running, just how much we rely on them--but also whom they work well for, and who pays the costs. Across the U.S. and elsewhere, these systems are suffering from systemic neglect and the effects of climate change, becoming unavoidably visible when they break down. Communities that are already marginalized often bear the brunt of these failures. But Chachra maps out a path for transforming and rebuilding our shared infrastructure to be not just functional but also equitable, resilient, and sustainable. The cost of not being able to rely on these systems is unthinkably high. We need to learn how to see them--and fix them, together--before it's too late.

Imagination: A Manifesto a book by Ruha Benjamin
Imagination: A Manifesto a book by Ruha Benjamin
A world without prisons? Ridiculous. Schools that foster the genius of every child? Impossible. A society where everyone has food, shelter, love? In your dreams. Exactly. Princeton professor Ruha Benjamin believes in the liberating power of the imagination. Deadly systems shaped by mass incarceration, ableism, digital surveillance, and eugenics emerged from the human imagination, but they have real-world impacts. To fight these systems and create a world that works for all of us, we will have to imagine things differently. As Benjamin shows, educators, artists, technologists, and more are experimenting with new ways of thinking and tackling seemingly intractable problems. Drawing from the work of these visionaries--including Black feminists, climate activists, Afrofuturists, and troublemakers of all sorts--Imagination: A Manifesto explores the possibility and practices required to imagine and create more just and habitable worlds.

How to build a low-tech internet
How to build a low-tech internet
We were told that the internet would dematerialize society and decrease energy use. Contrary to this projection, it has become a massive infrastructure and a rapidly growing energy consumer. In this series of articles, Low-tech Magazine examines the reasons behind the ever-expanding resource use of digital communication and what we can do about it. The internet isn't an autonomous being. Its growing energy use results from decisions made by software developers, web designers, marketeers, publishers, and internet users. By placing communications in a historical context and with the development of its lightweight, off-the-grid, and solar powered website, Low-tech Magazine challenges our high-tech approach to sustainability and highlights the possibilities of alternative solutions. Table of contents: 1. Why we need a speed limit for the internet2. Email in the 18th century: the optical telegraph3. How to build a low-tech internet?4. How to build a low-tech website?5. How sustainable is a solar powered website?6. How and why I stopped buying laptops7. Why the office needs a typewriter revolutionThis book contains 70 images in black & white.

Attached: 1 image Astoundingly good book from @edyong209@mastodon.xyz - I really savoured this one. the title #AnImmenseWorld is not wrong - I wondered as I started it just how much you can write about how animals sense the world. It turns out you can write a lot and every single page glimmers with wonder, delight, new insights and knife sharp writing. I enjoyed his previous book very much too, but this is book of the year if not book of the decade territory. Simply superb. #summerReadingChallenge
