Ponder Point 2

23 Chunks of Being:

Gregory Grieve’s Experiments in Transmitting Pure actuality

Traditional philosophy almost by definition

 has concerned itself with the unsaid.

Joseph Kosuth, “Art After Philosophy”

Pragmatically, to mark these 23 pieces as chunks of experience set off from ordinary communication, Grieve calls them *objects,” which are neither so much about content, nor form and materials, nor about ideas and meanings. Instead, each is a recipe, as a seed, a media assemblage apparatus for generating what it is like to dwell in a particular world. Because of his time served in the Academy, however, Grieve’s own explanations often become quagmired in impenetrable classical Zen Buddhism, Lacanian even or post-Heideggerian jargon. If you want to understand, don’t listen to him. Don’t read what he writes. Instead, as the Austrian-British philosopher of language, Ludwig Wittgenstein, writes: “Don’t think: but look!” Which Grieve hopes will allow you to also “see” and “experience.”
