AALAWuN EXQuiZICfacts


uTOPIAA uPDATES 




EXQuiZICfacts is LAWuN project 32 and is a channel of The Invisible University:

BILL OF QuANTITIES
*flexible through time available
10 Rounds of Architectural Questions
A Total of Many Questions
Each Round Concludes with a Drawing
* Teams and Participants as yet an Unknown Quantity

ARE YOU AND I IN THE SAME PLACE?
let’s get together at the same placeless in the same spaceless;
a spaceless support engine for unassessed dreaming and doing nothing at all
online is only an option; IU resists victim status of a desperate survival within the rolls of fat of the internet. IU invites you to breath where others muzzle and stifle.

Ding Ding!
Fingers on Proverbial buzzers.
what would the world look like as an IU..PERHAPS A BIT LIKE THIS EXPERIMENT ? THE INVISIBLE UNIVERSITY IS A WAY OF THINKING for a culture whose technologies are outside the visible spectrum




A matter of information
all data is laid out in front for us to see
a Q&A blockchain each position respectful and reliant on the other

IU Needs no new buildings
Structures can be drafted and drawn as you walk towards themselves and erased as you exit

IU needs no more rules
freedom to piss on the body of the managerial protocols of the education industry

THE EXQuIZICfacts Channel of the IU
explores the online quiz culture which has peaked during the time we have all been locked in our homes. Either you control the change or it will be thrust upon you.
Use Zoom in connection to A. Grabbing a coffee. B. Licking an Ice cream.

Finally
You are the Quiz
A collaborative drawing of imagined structures through the endless asking of questions. Answers optional. Less scripted more questions.

AALAWuN pioneers

graduation

         

 eddit also available here on BitChute 



Your Virtual Graduation,
In a kind of way all of you are graduating in absentia
Well not exactly ,your absence is physical yes .
But your presence is ,as is much in your culture, floating somewhere in the electronic nervous system that envelopes our planet , the world wide web,.in the form of a virtual graduation
So the congratulations that LAWuN sends all of you similarly swirl in this invisible cloak .
You are the inheritors of a ceremony that dates from the first universities in 12cent. Europe
A solemn ceremony that has globally transformed into a set of signs and rituals of dress and behaviour .A ceremony that was introduced only about 25 years ago at the AA , about the samne time as public access to the web .
You are pioneers ,
You are the first students at the AA to be awarded degrees
You are the first to experience a virtual graduation ceremony where your AA community of students is fragmented across distance and time .
Pioneers in new learning landscape ?
Pioneering thrust upon you as your analog studies were collapsed by a virus propelling you into your new reality of remoteness zoom and the rest .
Pioneers that may now perhaps consider all the years of hardwork leading up to this virtual graduation as an ticket to experience and discover the potential of a world of non-striving; a complement to your current imposed state of being .

Our plan for July 25th will have three elements.



  1. A one minute video about where you are : prior to July 25th, participants will prepare a one minute video (or less!) to be screened at the start of our virtual encounter. 
  2. A pub quiz : LAWuN will put together questions, which, will be presented by Eddie’s expert quiz host friend. 
  3. An exquisite corpse : during the intervals of the quiz, each participant will draw a part of a building with the narrative guidance of LAWuN. Each drawing will be sent to pati who will compile them.
  4.  

The films are introductions of who and where we are connecting with. The quiz hangs on to the structure of the exquisite corpse, which then has an afterlife post virtual encounter. Do we send the individual pieces for people to assemble across the world ? Or is each assembly sent to the participants throughout the course ? Who knows .

In any case it would be good to know how many participants there will be, and whether there needs to be teams for the quiz or not. 

David and Eddie, anything else you want to add ?

Best,
Patato

AALAWuN LOCKstep continues......


LAWuNline 

A reply from a prisoner who liked being in prison:


Locked in
Locked up
Locked down
Locked out
Furloughed employees are locked out of their email accounts by their employers. Locked out of work – we will force you to be free.
TIME to SPEND.
Furloughed workers wander the empty streets, through the sunlit parks, sit by the silent tennis courts.
The luxury of the philosopher shepherds of ancient Greece – the luxury of time, freed from the daily grind of base labour – freed to dream, freed to THINK.

FORCED to boredom in the parks.
BOREDOM IS A TONIC
Sunbathe on weekdays

Boris waved a magic wand and we all went to sleep.

It happened suddenly – it is important that it happened suddenly. All at once and all together into suspended animation.

Life became a train journey – carried along, passive, a state of grace, time to day-dream. A peculiar dispensation.

Floating through quiet London streets in the spring breeze, watching scattered people gently strolling, lying in the sun - think of the modernist sanatorium. Aalto’s gleaming white liner floating over the pine-tops…

Think Thomas Mann and Magic Mountains. Time does funny things…

OTTIS READING:

Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again

I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time
Looks like nothin's gonna change
Everything seems to stay the same

WASTING TIME
THE SAME

Locks and prisons, prisons and time, architecture and time…
The prisoner is freed from their future.

Surrender.

                          (Origin and meaning of lock by Online Etymology Dictionary)
German Loch "opening, hole," Dutch luik "shutter, trapdoor"
– a trapdoor, a means of escape – to fall through the floor, fall out of time.

Alice falling in the rabbit hole had ample time to ponder her predicament.

Some old slang:
·     A 'wooden parenthesis'; the pillory.
·      An 'iron parenthesis'; a prison.

["Dictionary of Buckish Slang, University Wit and Pickpocket Eloquence," London, 1811]


Held in place, locked in – LIFE BETWEEN PARENTHESES

Walls too can act like brackets.

EXODUS: Koolhaas’s voluntary prisoners flocked to the magic space held between his two walls: “Two walls enclose and protect this zone to retain its integrity”… between the walls “Time has been suppressed. Nothing ever happens here, yet the air is heavy with exhilaration.”

Exhilaration, yes that’s it.

Why are crises so exhilarating? Why did life feel more real in lockdown? Am I the only one…who felt free...?

Lock in
Lock up
Lock Down
Lock step
(Locks and Architecture see S.Gideon )
Does the virus makes us all prisoners ?
But this assumes it assumes we were not already prisoners
In and invisible prison .
A prisoner of love – bing crosby
Alone from night to night you'll find me
Too weak to break the chains that bind me
I need no shackles to remind me
I'm just a prisoner of love

For one command I stand and wait now
From one who's master of my fate now
I can't escape for it's too late now
I'm just a prisoner of love
There is a long history of architects designing prisons
and airports which process thousands of passengers/day through an endless series of instructional signs and a minimum of staff.
Lock-up-architecture
Robin Evans wrote with much insite on the building types
Prison and Hospital ..
The same kind of plans …
The panoptican ,
A very literal Spatial surveillance of illness and deviance
Consider the imaginary empty prisons of Pirenesi
Carceri d’invenzione
Consider open plan living , open plan prisons and hospitals
History ?
Consider Bentham’s sinister architectural plan ,the prisoner will never know whether or not he is being watched , his captor is invisible
Famliar ?
Piranesis’ prisoner could see and feel his chains and the oppressive architectural weight
Our internet chains are invisible , our virus chains are as invisible as the wind. Stuck in a World Wide WEB spider food
New technology continues its relentless journey of eraure of our
physical world . Life with a tracking tag, Checking in each day with G4S employees who are on zero hour contracts
Finally
Locked Down we can with www.prisonarchitect.com build and manage a maximum security prison .
Build and manage a prison for ourselves .
Thanks but we are already prisoners
Locked down , locked up , locked in ? In lockstep with what?
Consider now the means of our escape !
