THEME OF THIS EDITION: MATTERS OF METHOD
When speaking about any type of action, be it physical or mental, an immediate transcription makes us describe it as a method. There are goals to be attained (however frivolous or blurry they might be) and an initial situation to start from. The method always develops in between these two. But what happens when the steps to take are not so clear, when the goal is lacking clarity or it even seems to be irrelevant? What motivates the use of a method and what feeds it?
Take the simplest action you do in your work and analyze it thoroughly, divide it into smaller and smaller particles and find out what holds everything together. Think about the last five years and draw a map of the different stages your city has been through. List the changes that took place and try to connect them. Think about decision making processes throughout a group or a nation – in what sense are they communicated?
