Plus de Croissance, un capitalisme idéal

DOUBT AS FORM                Charlie Jeffery 2012

How might DOUBT constitute a machine for producing

DOUBT as motor for production of form

The formation of DOUBT through physical manifestation

FORMS as crystillisations  of DOUBT

FORMS that are in and of themselves DOUBTFUL

DOUBTLESSNESS is an ERROR that may not lead anywhere

DOUBT as a means of invention

FORMS that manifest DOUBT in the receiver, in the observer, in the on looker

FORMS that set in motion a chain of DOUBT

DOUBT as a means of forming objects

FORM as a means of producing DOUBT

DOUBT as a means of forming objects in physical materials

FORM as a means of producing DOUBT in physical experience

FORM as the ongoing materialisation  of the continuing persistance of DOUBT

This Manifesto (if it is one) is subject to change, and remains both incomplete and unstable



A slip of the hand and the unforeseen, the unplanned comes into being

An Unfortunate event leads to unexpected discovery

Allowing ERROR to exist in it’s own right

Identifying when ERROR occurs and allowing it to flourish

Opening the door to ERROR and its possible consequences both foreseeable and unforeseeable

Allowing ERROR to control, in order to set in motion its own logic, pattern, sequences

Having the  ability to see ERROR when it occurs and letting it take advantage of the situation

The difficulty of seeing ERROR

The difficulty of identifying the moment of ERROR and seizing the opportunity to allow it to take control and set in motion the opening of doors to its logic and possible/hypothetical consequences

This likewise is unfinished and rough around the edges, and perhaps betrays too much it’s own inadequacies.

Garden at Lugar a dudas Cali

Is everything a garden?

Cali, Colombia, Lugar a dudas

The office of imaginary landscape has moved across the atlantic and I find myself in Cali staying at

The office of imaginary landscape, 2011 Charlie Jeffery

Set aside a space in an office with a light source (sunlight is good/ a window)

Employ a surface or object, or combination of these

Cover or fill with earth Make humid

Find seeds or small plants (any species can be used, some may work better than others)

Embed them in the earth

Place a webcam in front of this arrangement in order to record what may happen

Water the plants and seeds as you see fit.

Continue this as long as you wish.

The video feed from the webcam will be linked to this webpage where it will be placed along side other feeds.

To quote Robert Barryʼs Art work 1970

« It is always changing.

It has order.

It doesnʼt have a specific place.

Its boundaries are not fixed.

It affects other things.

It is affected by other things.

It may be accessible but go unnoticed.

Part of it may also be part of something else.

Some of it is familiar, Some of it is strange.

Knowing of it changes it. »
