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:

Player Portrait

Added December 29th 2005 @ 12:00 am

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.

Exquisite Corpse (Analog)

Added by Jason 7au March 15th 2006 @ 1:14 am

Make plans to meet another player or players, preferably one(s) you haven't met before, in a public place (park, bar, cafe, restaurant, government building, museum, etc.). While together, play Exquisite Corpse, either the poetic or illustrative version. Show your results to those around you or other passersby. Record both your resulting Corpses and the reactions of those who bear witness to the results.

Package From The Insane

Added by Icky Bob March 29th 2006 @ 12:26 pm

Acquire the mailing address of a stranger (or friend) and send them a package (anonymously) seemingly packed by the insane.

PLEASE, do not make it mean, dangerous or insulting.

Example: take a cardboard box and write obscure mathematical equations or quotes of nonsense. Draw STRANGE pictures or just a single word with great emphasis (FUR).

Pack it with useless detritus meticulously combined. (Small wooden dowels glued to packets of taco sauce powder with a foreign dignitaries face affixed over the ingredients label).

A folded and sealed packet of small clothing (a tie, underwear).
