About Participants Issues   Contact SenseLab
  INFLEXIONS ISSUES are built around special-edited thematic clusters and invited contributions. Each is edited by one or several members of the editorial collective or by invited external editors working in consultation with the editorial collective. Unsolicited contributions are also welcome, and if accepted may be included in the thematic "Node" or the interlinked "Tangents" section.

NODE
features a group of conceptually interlinked pieces that engage with a particular problematic in a variety of different modes, including but not limited to academic essays._

TANGENTS
present individual contributions to the theory and practice of research-creation. Tangents pieces strike off in directions all their own, and resonate across their divergences. Taken together, they suggest potential connections with each other and the issue Node.

Into the Midst (*Flash only)

edited by Erin Manning
web design by Leslie Plumb

This issue is the first experiment in our new 'out of series' journal issues. Authorship within these issues will be treated as a collective experience, and contributions to an issue engaged by the design as a chorus. The design of this particular issue is a collaboration between Erin Manning and Leslie Plumb.

This issue consists of responses from the SenseLab Collective and participants of the 'Into the Midst' event that occurred in October of 2012. Into the Midst was a five-day collaborative research-creation workshop in and around the SATosphere, the Society for Art and Technology's interactive immersive projection environment (aka 'The Dome').

TANGENTS: No. 3 - Micropolitics: Exploring Ethico-Aesthetics (*all tangents require Flash plugins)
edited by Erin Manning and Leslie Plumb
 
  Tangents for this issue are “molecules” from Society of Molecules - May 1-7 2009 a distributed international event organized by the SenseLab. Each molecule was composed of 3-10 people in 16 locations across the world. One member of each molecule was designated as an “emissary” and visited another molecule during the period leading up to the event. Emissaries deposited a “seed” with the host molecule and brought back a “recipe” to their home molecule. Molecular events were conceived as local interventions with ethico-aesthetic reverbations on a micropolitical level.
