L is for Love Poem 

When You Are Old WHEN you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love …

Kyle’s Metaprimer #2: L is for Light 

As a child, any time in my parents’ house or in my grandparents’ apartment when the stove’s light was not turned on, I would turn it on. These amber lights fascinate me, and still do until this day. ___________________________________________________________________ In Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse, Mrs. Ramsay, the work’s heroine, exposes her vulnerability in …

Kiran’s MetaPrimer #2 — L is for Life by Joe Brainard. 

L is for Life by Joe Brainard. Joe Brainard is one of my favorite poets.  I appreciate the general style of his writing—simple, honest, and candid.  While I also appreciate poetic forms, Brainard’s poetry works alone and unstructured.  Life is one of my favorite of Brainard’s poems.  I find it especially poignant because Brainard died …

L is for Listen 

Once upon a time, we were going to create a class playlist or something. I don't think that happened. Before it's too late, here's a sampling of the playlist -- heavy on the "list," not on the "play" (L is also for Lazy) -- of the songs I listen to when I'm doing WRITING work. …

L is for Libraries 

I've always loved libraries; the walls lined with books, full of words that make up stories from the minds of others. As a child I distinctly remember the day I got my own library card, what freedom! I could go into any public library and peruse the hundreds of books on the shelves and borrow …

L is for Learning the Art of Abstraction 

I have spent most of this rainy morning reading through my “primer partner's” posts in the attempt to come up with a good introduction to her work. As I sit here trying to isolate a common theme which spans her posts, to identify the general approach which characterizes her notes, I realise that there is …

L is for Low-level fascism 

Immersive theater, continued... Not long after the immersive genre has really begun to expand, critics are bemoaning it, as the critic for London’s The Guardian writes: “If you've seen one too many “immersive” pieces of theatre, the shock and excitement of sharing a space with the actors can just simply wear off…I have the feeling …

L is for Bullshit Art/ists 

In reading so much about public and socially engaged art that eliminates the boundaries between "artist" and "spectator", we've all probably rehaped and reconceived our aesthetic values about "street art". However, I've been confronted repeatedly over the years with REALLY BAD PUBLIC ART that poses itself as emancipatory and anti-elitist, as if that in and …

L is for Lasers 

As a news and historic preservation junkie I came across news articles discussing a major change in preservation, portable 3D Lasers! The company is called CyArk. They were inspired by the 2001 destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas, which was a loss felt by everyone around the world. (Sidebar: the Bamiyan Buddhas were built 16oo years …

Lines made visible_ Matthew Ritchie’s artworks of lines 

In relation to our line talks and Shusterman's comment of contemporary artists responding to changes in our lifeworld particularly towards a modular and informational experience, I thought the contemporary artist Matthew Ritchie’s artwork would be worth to be talked about. Matthew Ritchie is one of those artists who is interested in developing his own mythical …

L is for Limitations 

Returning to Schusterman's discussion of the body as both coloring and being colored by experiences, I've been thinking about how our physical limitations can alter how we experience or perceive something, the kinds of experiences in which we can participate, and the capacity to which we can partake of them. Our bodies are complex and …

L is for Light 

1. We measure great distances by light, or more accurately, by the time it takes light to travel between the points being measured. When two objects in the universe are so far apart that their distances cannot be comprehended by our normal modes of measurement, i.e. miles, kilometers, etc., we measure these distances by light. …

L is for Lie 

This post is a lie. It is actually not about lies at all. It’s not even directly linked to the letter “L.” It’s about Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, but since I had already used up my “A” post on “Alliteration” (so much regret…), I decided to attempt to be clever and hijack another letter for …

L is for Latte Art 

Most of us here are probably guilty of ordering a latte across the street at Joes and then admiring the perfectly foamed shaped heart at the top of our cup. With the many places art reveals itself in the everyday, who knew it would be in our coffee? This overdone artwork also known as “Latte …

L is for Lifetime 

In Greg Miller’s article, “Your Elusive Future Self,” Miller points out that many people greatly underestimate how much they will change in the future. The lifetime commitments we make are based on the assumption that we will know who we are going to be in ten years. The results of a series of online experiments …

L is for Language 

The vast between heaven and earth has played a variety of language sonatas. Everything has its own unique language. The language of the sun is warmness; the language of the moon is romance; the language of spring breeze is gentleness; the language of water is insistence; the language of ocean is spaciousness. At this moment, …

L is for Literature 

Books have always been intrinsic to education. Books hold the knowledge of the society. If you read books then you know things. This is all wonderful but what about the art of literature. I feel like this is being lost in the classroom. How often do we read a book in an educational setting and …

L is for non/linear connections 

L is for Linear connections... In the age of "Accountability" in education, "reformers" are actively seeking to improve teacher e ff ectiveness by connecting teachers to student test scores. These lines are not free flowing traces or gestures-- they are predetermined connections. The problem is that a teacher's …

L is for Line 

What is a transcript but the discrete itemization of the lines that constitute one's educational trajectory? Line by line. The story of Theseus and the Minotaur has much to commend itself as the beginnings of a proto-educational lineage. A first line. The Minotaur, we should note, drops out, as if already slain. It is, …
