Abstract or Description

Drawing on Merleau-Pontean sources, and various artworks and exhibitions including Kiosk: ‘Modes of Multiplication' & 'Liam Gillick: Edgar Schmitz' (ICA 2005-6) I reflected on why and how a particular phenomenon, perhaps previously ignored or apparently inactive or remote, may suddenly break into a life and effect change? What does it 'know'? What - to cite Maurice Merleau-Ponty, the French phenomenologist and philosopher of embodiment - is its "secret science"? And how do these forms of knowledge relate to our own processes and practices of knowing, learning and teaching?
