Case Study Daniel Eatock

A collection of small tests of social dialogue, which all together say something about our society.
The work of Daniel Eatock creates places in space to re-evaluate society. The rituals and traditions in our society are mostly taken for granted and reasons for why they exist and how they work are unquestioned. Without judgement or imposing opinion, Eatock gives the audience the opportunity to explore and investigate their surroundings and system.

Why do we behave and act as we do?
Why do things look as they look like?
Why are things called as they are?
What does our language mean?
What is the definition of a word?

Through social dialogue and playful exercises we can dematerialize the meaning and value of objects, patterns and systems in our society and then, without the previous beliefs, re-building, re-doing, re-designing and re-visioning them. Find his (participation!) projects at www.danieleatock.com

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Today I got the best Valentines gift ever: Pedro, 1 of the students of the Nordic Black Express has repeated the hugging event with some friends! I had contacted the students earlier this week if they wanted to do a hug-hour today at valentines day, with the intention to make it something more. In a discussion with my teacher, he asked me why I wanted to repeat the same thing? What new was that going to bring me? It confused me a bit and it took some time before I understood that it is not about doing the same thing better, but about exactly what happened today: a creative pay it forward. Some people who naturally repeated ‘the concept’, sharing kindness with (unknown) people!

Replace worries

link

This reminded me of Buckminster Fuller who says in Critical Path something about instead of worrying using that time for action. For me This poster states something about our worries and the value and importance of them. Worrying is often useless and mindkilling unless it gives you something e.g. makes you stronger or actually brings you a solution. In my experience worrying ‘freezes’ or leads to a vicious circle, but accepting it could give the freedom for creative thinking and salvation.

Beyond Culture

I have read Beyond Culture ( Edward T. Hall) and it gave me some insights. A short summary of research.

We think and behave according to the cultural system we have grown up with, but we tend to assume that everyone has the same cultural behavior and the same logic. Logic happens to be an invention of Western society and isn’t used-in the same way- in other parts of the world.
It made me think about the so called lesser developed countries. They have a different culture and a different working -and thinking- method, which probably worked fine until we came along and imposed, with good intentions? our methods on them. Because they didn’t have the same technological development as we had, it doesn’t imply that our system and working methods are better. They are simply different.
Several times while reading this book, memories of certain situations came up and I caught myself on my behavior and on how many times I have tried to impose my logic upon others. There is no right or wrong in cultural patterns, likely there is a right and wrong in situations. We need to start accepting that we are different and open up our eyes to learn form each other. We should be happy to live in multi-cultural societies, for it gives us many opportunities to learn about ourselves as well as to learn about others. Our own culture (as any culture) has flaws, but we take them for right, because that is the logic that has been taught to us.
Obama said in a speech as well that he considered Hip-Hop -and other art forms- to be a useful way to convey messages to the people not only as a mirror of what is, but also as a medium to bring reflection what can be. New ways of thinking are coming up all over the world, a positive thing, to realize that we are opening up to be challenged. People get more inventive when they are challenged and placed in (unknown) different situations. We need to learn to see ourselves as others see us, in order to get more understanding about our own being and the other.
