LAWuN Clarity


& Harmony

On a personal level, Freaking Out is a process whereby an
individual casts off outmoded and restricting standards of
thinking, dress, and social etiquette in order to express
CREATIVELY his relationship to his immediate environment and
the social structure as a whole.

/Frank Zappa

LAWuN - Menu Lists & Meringues

in 1650 Blaise Pascal calculated that the weight of all the air on the planet is 8,283,889,440,000,000,000 lbs . and he was pretty much right ! and in a meringue a tiny bit of that ?

air in food .. Souffl├ęs , mr. Whippy and those modern foams ... the mass of air on earth is 5 quadrillion tonnes .. or 1/1,200.00 of the mass of the planet .... funny where a 3 letter word can take you ... to poetry and facts ... is that what Mailler meant by factoids ?
'Bodies without surface '... da Vinci on clouds . ... meringue a surface without a BODY ?

Consider the highest point on earth, Everest is 8.8 km above sea level .
Yet Any hieght above 3.5 km and we get dizzy .
We can say thaty we occupy a very tiny band of air on the planet .
We can say that if we venture above ten times the hieght of the Shard,(.32km. ) it would be diffucult to make a meringue !

  1. Gary Woodley is bringing the Kitchen at 6:45-7 on Tuesday evening
  2. Floor will be Covered in Sheets with Stencilled LaWuN ( Done by Josh P) any other ideas or thoughts on floor treatment under the kitchen is welcomed
  3. Table Cloths - Think we have decided to change all the tables every time i think me and Buster Can do this since he is well invested in the table also
  4. Side tables for Wine to feature wedges to locate bottles for full and empties
  5. What noise is used as a signifier that the next stage is to be laid ?
  6. After each section table cleared and all table cloths removed and pinned up. As me and buster are putting them down prehaps 2 others can take them up as we go along. Rory and Laurence prehaps ?
  7. Lawrence can you send a break down of the day to Stefan ? or Produce a list is it the same as the Menu i presume. Then we can start to sign our roles.
  8. Carlos Can you or have you e-mailed the Slade folks ? Eddie said here given you Gary’s e-mail
  9. Me and Rory will buy the food on the Tuesday, eggs, little oil etc.

Josh H - Film streaming &Audio
We got AKG CGN98 condenser mics which are better than sm57 for speeches. The quality of YouTube is generally good. You can listen to one of the recent lectures on the AA's video page. If you wish you can have other recorders to supplement but in my view is not necessary.
In regard to mic for q&as, unfortunately we have to get people to hold their thought until a handheld mic reaches them. One more solution is to stick a shotgun / directional mic on a boom and get someone to swing it during question and answers. It might be too much of hassle but it's your best option for getting the best quality recording.
By what I'm reading you need two student assistant to help with the cameras. Is that right?

Laurence: Archive Photos + Film compilation
Menu notes for handout

Pete - Costume update

Stefan - Dance Updates

+ Gone to Lunch/out to lunch pause - candelabra- toast rack - mobile kitchen - Place mats  (foundation Saskia)- Wednesday advert filming - Mobile Kitchen - EGGS !

I would also love to quote from Dali: ' in fact I only like to eat what has a
clear and intelligible form. I love eating suits of arms, in fact I love all
shell fish... food that only a battle to peel makes it vulnerable to the
conquest of our palate.'

LAWuN - moving on

The importance of the past is perhaps best described by John Frazer’s allusion to sailing ….
 . I suppose if I say I am  moving on then
 it rather implies that I am moving on from
 somewhere? If you navigate by dead
 reckoning in a boat then you have to know
 where on the chart you started out from in
 order to know where you are heading
