A FOR APOTHEKA (apothḗkē)

 

To create a knowledge-montage was therefore to reject the matrices of intelligibility, to break through the age-old guardrails. (for Aby Warburg's Pathos Formula)

 

                                                             - P.A.Michaud 

A FOR ASCOTT

 

Roy Ascott’s visionary theory and practice aspire to enhance human consciousness and to

unite minds around the world in a global telematic embrace that is greater than the sum of its parts.

 

- E.A. Shanken 

WELCOME TO

THE A-CLUB.

 

The A-Club is a members-only private club, aiming at the promotion  of 'social syncretism'. The hallmark of the A-Club indicates the need of  a new language which leads to alternative behaviours encompassing the prime idea of blessedness.  According to the ancient Greek philosophers, happiness is the only ultimate goal of mankind.  Yet, to gain happiness in our trans-humanistic era, we should explore our 'variable reality  through the Five [A]s.

THE FIVE [A]s

reflect  Roy Ascott's five-fold path: connectivity, immersion, interaction, transformation and emergence. 

THE FIVE [A]s

are available in large quantities (and admirable qualities) in Karoussos' Apotheka where they are housed in specialised containers of consiousness and stored under specific cybernetic conditions.

               A FOR ART

 

. . . [A]rt itself becomes, not a discrete set of entities, but rather a web of relationships between ideas and images in constant flux, to which no single authorship is attributable, and whose meanings depend on the active participation of

whoever enters the network. . . .

                                                                 - R.Ascott

A FOR ATHENS

 

Come then, and let us pass a leisure hour in storytelling, and our story shall be the education of our heroes.
                                                ― Plato, The Republic

A FOR ALL INCLUSIVE

 

A place where one can ask whether one can ask for the right to knowledge which includes the these, the those and the others
