We organised a workshop and walk with artist Shama Khana.
Lucy Clout for Flatness.eu
We walked to the flower Garden in Regent Park.
We talked about working semi-digitally/ online archiving and online distribution of art; flatness of the screen and our collective desires.
"FLATNESS IS A CALL TO ARTISTS FOR THEIR SKILLS AS DE-AUTOMATORS OF ROUTINE AND LEARNT BEHAVIOURS TO PREVENT THE COMPLETE CO-OPTION OF TECHNOLOGY!"
Shama Khanna, maker of Flatness.eu
flat: having a level surface, without raised areas or indentations; in or to a horizontal position; outright, completely, absolutely
thinking abt ways of flatenning / working through / existing within power structures that lie within the flatness of the screen
