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:

Improve the view through a particular window by painting on, or otherwise altering that window. What you see outside should inspire what can be drawn on the inside.

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.
