A field guide to observable phenomena : a tool for aesthetic practice
MetadataShow full item record
A Field Guide to Observable Phenomena is the result of various observational investigations of natural phenomena that I have performed during the last two years. In this guide, I write a commentary on the role of naming and active perception, suggest tools for observation, and give examples of named and identified phenomena. Structurally, I am putting forward a mode of classification that can hold both current and future findings. The guide is considered to be an open work as it also lacks a formal conclusion. Operationally, it puts forward questions and rather than answering them directly, it relies upon the reader to participate actively with the text in order that the answers be revealed.
