An Archive of the Yet to Become

Claire Reddleman & John Levett

08 Nov 2016
The Seminar:
An Archive of The-Yet-To-Become is a collaborative endeavour to marry the once-was to the now-is and to speculate upon the visibly-becoming. It struggles with the Sisyphean task of describing, recording and interpreting a system in motion. It tries to marry the concrete [the pavement] and the organic [the emergence between the cracks]; the present [the time taken for one step forward] with the projected [the event horizon of anti-neoliberal-capitalist vigour]; the above [aspirational] with the below [four-to-the-floor syncopated activism].
 
The Tutors:
Claire Reddleman is a photographic artist and academic who is interested in maps, landscape and the limits of photography. Claire's academic interests include cartographic abstraction, a way of understanding how we are positioned and mediated by the maps we use to picture the world; and new ways of understanding landscape through both theory and art.
John Levett is currently a Visiting Research Fellow in the Centre for Urban & Cultural Research at Goldsmiths, University of London. John is also the Crossing Lines Convenor: a collaborative discussion group on all matters urban. He is a participant & contributor to The Walking-Reading Group and a collaborator in The Elephant’s Journey Collective.
