Traces of Possibility
Tim Ingold in 'Being Alive : Essays on Movement, Knowledge and Description' (Routledge, 2011, p149)
Suzi Gablik's call in The Re-Enchantment of Art (Thames and Hudson, 1991) for a new ecology and community focused culture is as relevant today as when published in the 1990's. If we are to develop such a critical engagement with nature we would seem to need a new mindfulness to the world around us – a new sensibility which is contemporary, yet alive to the world as a world of becoming rather than a world of rosy nostalgia or trite possessions. A world where mortality - including our own - is a part of that constancy of becoming.
Traces of Possibility is a search for space where the possibility of such a sensibility might exist
