“Is it possible to imagine so ridiculous as this miserable and wretched creature, which is not so much as master of himselfe, exposed and subject to offences of all things, and yet dareth call himself Master and Emperor.” Montaigne

Actual Occasion at Amp Peckham – (An experiment in Affect Theory)

Actual Occasion is an evolving collective installation which aims to bring back an aesthetic ontology to community. Working with Professor Tony Sampson (Assemblage Brain) and curator Caroline Gregory (The Surgery) it interrogates how institutions and authority have historically eradicated aesthetic ontology to allow the framework of symbolic data to be implemented. Through art installation, feelings of felt intesity and material vitality are harnessed to nurture a sense of potential for further creative acts. Song writing workshops and public interaction are used to explore a speculative idea that through feeling we begin to create the subject and understand eachother.
