The University of Aesthematics

Aesthematicians devote themselves to the trinity of Technique, Appearance and Product.

Art informs and is informed by technique, specifically, techniques of producing meaning. Techniques: painting, discourse about experts, signatures, neighborhood appropriation and gentrification, museums, fashion, workplace art, drawing, anti-art, multimedia, "rediscovering" the body, depoliticization, illegality, personality, ambivalence.

As a factory of meaning, art is continually (re)equipped with the finest machines and the brightest managers. When new technology is released, art slots it in next to last year's model and turns it on. The managers optimize it to run at maximum efficiency.

Whatever colors they may wear, these players have distinguished themselves by the number of tasks they have completed in the zone of The University of Aesthematics:

Add A Useless Rope

Added by teucer March 10th 2009 @ 3:00 pm

I seldom find in my adventures that a rope has been positioned in a way which fascinates me without being helpful, such as perhaps turning a piece of public art and a tree into the supports for a giant spiderweb.

Install a useless rope or string.

Player Portrait

Paint a fellow player - we'd really prefer that you use their player photo as your model, though. Any medium/style, but let us know what you end up doing with it.
