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:

Create Art "Under The Influence"

Added by The Pixie June 24th 2008 @ 6:27 pm

Make any form of art under the influence of your choice!
Though being "high on life" is not acceptable, feel free to be creative. Provide photos (or whatever media is appropriate) of your artwork, and photos of you drinking/smoking etc.
If you collaborate, please, no peer pressure.

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).
