#TransActing; A market of values I participated in Critical Practice to produce;

#TransActing: A Market of Values
Saturday, 11th July 2015, 12 - 5pm

This bustling pop-up market featured artists, designers, donorpreneurs, publishers, civil-society groups, academics, ecologists, activists and others who creatively explore existing structures of evaluation and actively produce new ones.

A market connects peoples’ needs and desires, through things, sometimes material things, via mediums of exchange, transactions. Markets are a bundle of simple technologies interlocked to form an ecology.

I will contribute to a discussion on The Market, which I take to be the Art Market at the ICA in London.

As a contribution to Shock City, I experimented with a live-tracing of the values that were valued. It's a method developed from the Tracing Values research custer

Shock City: Resilience and the Anthropocene

 

Shock City was the launch the Year of Resilience (YoR) a two-day international event featuring practitioners from Chelsea, Camberwell and Wimbledon Colleges of Art and beyond.   It was hosted  in the Banqueting Hall, Chelsea College of Arts, London.

Resilience can be understood as the capacity of a bounded network - a person, bacterial culture, a forest, a city or an economy - to deal with change and continue to develop. It is a response to shocks and disruption, like an infection, financial crisis or climate change that spurs creative practice and encourages renewal. Resilience is a means of taking action and creating sustainable ways to co-exist within our biosphere.
