Curated Decay: Arts of Losing, Noticing, Listening

02/06/2018 — 02/06/2018

Talk by Caitlin DeSilvey for Tuned City Messene

 

How might a focus on material process and persistence, rather than preservation and permanence, reorient heritage practice? What new relationships with the past (and the future) emerge from intentional accommodation of transience and decay? When change is inevitable, can we move past discussion of loss and ‘letting go’ to think instead about metamorphosis and ‘letting be’?
