Threaded Particles | Spring 2021

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.

Throughout the weeks of Spring 2021, we will be sharing related images and notes as an open book or laboratory of sorts exploring these historic, poetic concepts.
