I Wish I Was Lonely/The Oh Fuck Moment (Paperback): Hannah Walker, Chris Thorpe I Wish I Was Lonely/The Oh Fuck Moment (Paperback)
Hannah Walker, Chris Thorpe
R332 Discovery Miles 3 320 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Two performance texts by Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe The Oh Fuck Moment Fucking up is the truest, funniest, most terrifying moment you can experience. Poet Hannah Jane Walker and theatre-maker Chris Thorpe examine the poetic guts of mistakes in a bundle of words and strip lighting. The Oh Fuck Moment is an award-winning conversation around a desk for brave souls to hold their hands up and admit they fucked up, or for people to laugh at us because we did. 'A brilliant celebration of our mistakes and evolutionary reflexes' Guardian I Wish I Was Lonely I Wish I Was Lonely is an interactive show about contactability asking whether the invisible waves we're tethered to might be drowning who we are. It's a show in which the audience commit to leaving their phones on. A show investigating what it means to participate in communication - or not. There are poems, there are stories and there is conversation. I Wish I Was Lonely sees Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe ask how much of ourselves we've given up to the new gods in our pockets. Hannah Jane Walker is a poet and Chris Thorpe is a theatre-maker.Together they make award-winning work that is part performance, part poetry gig and part interactive experience. Their work is based around an honest encounter between themselves, an audience and the difficult but often uplifting moments we all face in the process of living. Their shows feel like a generous, open conversation, with poetry and storytelling at their heart and space for audiences to contribute in a meaningful way.

'Properly analytical ... always entertaining' TIME OUT 'Should tempt both those generally familiar with Andy Warhol and, even more, young people who have trouble imagining how popular art can challenge the status quo' L A TIMES Painter, filmmaker, photographer, philosopher, all-round celebrity, Andy Warhol is an outstanding cultural icon. He revolutionised art by bringing to it images from popular culture - such as the Campbell's soup can and Marilyn Monroe's face - while his studio, the Factory, where his free-spirited cast of 'superstars' mingled with the rich and famous, became the place of origin for every groundswell shaping American culture. In many ways he can be seen as the precursor to today's 'celebrity artists' such as Tracey Emin and Damian Hirst. But what of the man behind the white wig and dark glasses? Koestenbaum gives a fascinating, revealing and thought-provoking picture of pop art's greatest icon.

Evocative Qualitative Inquiry - Writing and Research Through Embodiment and the Poetic (Hardcover): Joanne Yoo Evocative Qualitative Inquiry - Writing and Research Through Embodiment and the Poetic (Hardcover)
Joanne Yoo
R1,185 Discovery Miles 11 850 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Evocative Qualitative Inquiry explores academic research that evokes vitality and life. It provides a road map into integrating the personal with professional to engage in intrinsically meaningful forms of inquiry. The book centers on the key considerations of engaging in evocative forms of writing in the academy. It depicts academic inquiry as an embodied process that is captured and understood through rhythm and resonance. It relays how pleasurable, sensory, and rhythmic forms of inquiry can engender a sense of timelessness, expansiveness, growth, and generativity. Evocative Qualitative Inquiry relates the challenges that may arise from following this less trodden academic inquiry path. It conveys the importance of faith and courage in forging one's own unique and authentic writing voice. The book concludes with an analogy of a poker game to illustrate how all academic writers possess the embodied capacity to write vibrant words that evoke. Finally, each chapter ends with reflection questions and activities to help readers practice the skills of writing evocatively. This book will be a valuable guide for those seeking evocative writing techniques to engage in vibrant forms of academic research. It is primarily written for academics who desire to learn more about creative, poetic, and embodied writing methodologies.

"Everyone should own a Beezy Bailey" - David Bowie. Beezy Bailey aspires to create art as a balm for a mad world - a corrective for our most lamentable human qualities, including a planet brutalised by extremes of wealth and poverty, environmental ignorance and negligence. Often his works are accompanied by poems, such as 1000 Year Dance Cure, in which he exhorts the world to dance a new dance, to abandon that which does not serve us, and to embrace each other in our humanity, and the Earth in her service to us. The sources of his imagery are elusive. In his own words: "frozen dreams, images and legends enter from my subconscious, the realm of my imagination. I act as a conduit for visual messages greater than I am." This new monograph embraces the entire spectrum of Bailey's creative output over the past thirty-five years, from sculpture and ceramics to paintings, prints and drawings.

The Philosophical Stage - Drama and Dialectic in Classical Athens (Hardcover): Joshua Billings The Philosophical Stage - Drama and Dialectic in Classical Athens (Hardcover)
Joshua Billings
R653 Discovery Miles 6 530 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

A bold new reconception of ancient Greek drama as a mode of philosophical thinking The Philosophical Stage offers an innovative approach to ancient Greek literature and thought that places drama at the heart of intellectual history. Drawing on evidence from tragedy and comedy, Joshua Billings shines new light on the development of early Greek philosophy, arguing that drama is our best source for understanding the intellectual culture of classical Athens. In this incisive book, Billings recasts classical Greek intellectual history as a conversation across discourses and demonstrates the significance of dramatic reflections on widely shared theoretical questions. He argues that neither "literature" nor "philosophy" was a defined category in the fifth century BCE, and develops a method of reading dramatic form as a structured investigation of issues at the heart of the emerging discipline of philosophy. A breathtaking work of intellectual history by one of today's most original classical scholars, The Philosophical Stage presents a novel approach to ancient drama and sets a path for a renewed understanding of early Greek thought.

AI for Arts is a book for anyone fascinated by the man-machine connection, an unstoppable evolution that is intertwining us with technology in an ever-greater degree, and where there is an increasing concern that it will be technology that comes out on top. Thus, presented here through perhaps its most esoteric form, namely art, this unfolding conundrum is brought to its apex. What is left of us humans if artificial intelligence also surpasses us when it comes to art? The articulation of an artificial intelligence art manifesto is long overdue, so hopefully this book can fill a gap that will have repercussions not only for aesthetic and philosophical considerations but possibly more so for the development of artificial intelligence.

Zarko Paic
R1,524 Discovery Miles 15 240 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The main themes and aims of this book are understanding aesthetics, contemporary art and the end of the avant-garde not from the traditional viewpoint of the metaphysics of the beautiful and the sublime but rather thru close connection to the techno-genesis of virtual worlds. This book tackles problems in contemporary art theory such as the body in space and time of digital technologies, along with other issues in visual studies and image science. Further intentions exhibit the fundamental reasons for the disappearance of the picture in the era of virtual reality starting from the notion of contemporary art as realized iconoclasm; art has no world for its "image". The author argues that the iconoclasm of contemporary art has severe consequences. This text appeals to philosophers of art and those interested in contemporary art theory.

I'm a Phoenix, Bitch (Paperback): Bryony Kimmings I'm a Phoenix, Bitch (Paperback)
Bryony Kimmings
R282 Discovery Miles 2 820 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

Bryony Kimmings creates multi-platform art works which aim to provoke change. Through script and photographs this book documents the show I'm a Phoenix, Bitch, Kimmings' personal response to the trauma of having post-natal breakdown. In 2016, Bryony nearly drowned. Postnatal breakdowns, an imploding relationship and an extremely sick child left her sitting beneath the waves hoping she could slowly turn to shell. Two years later she was able to deal with life again, but wears the scars of that year like a dark and heavy cloak. Who do we become after trauma? How do we turn pain into power? How do we fly instead of drown? Bryony Kimmings returned to performance in 2018 with her first solo show in nearly a decade. A mythical legend performed straight from a heart still pulsing with pain. Combining personal stories with epic film, soundscapes and ethereal music, Bryony creates a powerful, dark and joyful work about motherhood, heartbreak and finding inner strength. "Bryony Kimmings' solo performance is acutely painful in places but it's actually an easy sell: this is an extraordinary piece of theatre. I'm a Phoenix, Bitch shows Kimmings is an artist of exceptional integrity, compassion, imagination and guts." (The Guardian) We will need new myths to survive the end of existence as we know it; for Bryony it is that of the invincible and fearless woman; a tale Bryony wishes she had known from birth.
