“Time, place, materials, shelter. The essential elements that enable us to take root, find community, and gather ourselves during challenging times. Folded into this equation is the very notion of meaningful work, true purpose, and the myriad ways that we approach craft and the organization of workspace.” — A.D. studio

Sounds in their Studios playlist created for Studio PRAIRIE

New terrain explored with a summer playlist assembled for Studio PRAIRIE. The songs and lyrics featured span my early land-based memories, broader ideas of nostalgia, historic research, and early mentorship with an esteemed ethnomusicologist and folklorist.

Studio PRAIRIE is the creation of artist, Jillian Solotes.

All of the Sounds in their Studios compilations are findable here.

Threaded Particles | statement

Online Archive: Threaded Particles, Spring 2021

Philosopher, mathematician, and scientist, René Descartes (1596–1650) proposed that magnetic attraction was caused by the charged movement of tiny helical particles or threaded parts that flowed in circuitous patterns through the pores of magnets, creating magnetic force as well as states of attraction and repulsion.

In the spirit of examining the flow of threaded particles, we have opened our archives to highlight what select artifacts, objects, and materials might communicate when juxtaposed and/or arranged beyond formal groupings and archiving systems.
