Mysticism as Information Design: Before Breadline on Wednesday!

There’s an exciting opportunity for you art and idea lovers happening this Wednesday before Breadline. Check out the full details from previous Breadline feature and UW Bothell professor Joe Milutis:

This Weds at noon, I’ll be giving a tour and talk of the Paul Laffoley
exhibit at the Henry:

It’s a more casual talk than the gesamptskunstwerk I did the last time at
the Henry (see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyUBZn8of9Q and here
http://archive.org/details/artistwritercollaborations) however I don’t often
get a chance to talk about issues related to my Ether book.  So we’ll go
deep, while still casual.  And there’s a lot to go into–we’ll probably just
scratch the surface of a few of the dense cryptic information in these
paintings, but hopefully they will let us stay as long as we want to discuss
and Q & A, etc.  Here is the official description:

Drawing from sources in alchemy, Theosophy and contemporary art, Joe
Milutis, Assistant Professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and
Sciences at UW Bothell will guide visitors through “Paul Laffoley:
Premonitions of the Bauharoque.” He will situate Laffoley¹s work in the
context of the long tradition of the mystic diagram, a visual trope that may
tell us as much, if not more, about the history of design than the
imponderabilia it attempts to grasp.
