I feel you behind me. I turn back and see somebody else. I scan the room, it feels empty without you. I sit on the place you sat before, filling with my body the shape of your absence.

Agamben’s obvious conclusion is that, by rendering the face invisible, the protective mask renders invisible the invisible abyss itself which is echoed by a human face. Really?

This project brings together a loose collective of artists for ad hoc experiments. These include a combination of Participants who are open to collaborate, formal Collaborators who can run workshops and interventions across our peers, and Contributors who can share more specific resources and experiences.
Collaborators are invited to run workshops and interventions for our loose collective of peers. These workshops generally takeplace on Saturday mornigns, or Thursday evenings. If you'd like to run an intervention, we're more than happy to host and make space for it in our OPEN STUDIO. Subsections are curated, and participants are invited to follow up on each intervention and in their own time.
Contributors for MAY 2021
Kane Cali (Studio) writing on 3D Scanning, and Printing
Glen Callejja (Studio Solipsis) writing on Mapping and Innovation
Clive Vella (Airwars) writing on Online Resources for GIS Investigations
We are still missing peers who are well versed in the sound arts. If you have any tips, tricks, online interventions, or simply, a useful tool in mind, please go ahead and get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
More specifically, we are also looking for contributions about: Physical Computing for Speculative Designs; Hosting Augmented Reality objects in Public Space; Soundscapes with Spoken Word.
These contributions are generally 500 to 800 words, and will be included in the ongoing toolkit. Contributors are also invited to take on the role of a formal collaborator by providing a workshop for this community and its peer network of artists.
The face is the most human of things. Humans have faces and not simply muzzles or snouts because they dwell in the open, because through their faces they expose themselves and communicate. This is why the face is the site of politics. Our unpolitical era does not want to see its own face, it keeps it at a distance, masks and covers it. There must no longer be faces, only numbers and figures. Even the tyrant is faceless.

There is usually a picture of Jesus up there. It's not funny. He scoured the earth for a lifetime and hangs on the wall of every kitchen I know. Maria said the same of his mother, the madonna. Right next to it, we have Ms Hamrun, and a number to her pizza place (Pulcinella, 21242084). The real madonna, the papa-don't preach madonna, replaced Jesus in the end. To make sure it sticks, we used the same frame for the vinyl and kept the same bolts. The wall now rests on our faith in these women. Pizza, Music, and the Notre Dame.
The face is the part of another’s body through which the abyss of the Other’s imponderable Otherness transpires. — Emmanuel Levinas
