Comprehensive piece Lucas. Thanks and great credit for the time and effort to craft this. We start a LAB at our uni this year which challenges modern module delivery with several of the things you mention. Whilst your piece didn’t frame this, one thing I’m keen to explore from writers is alternatives to dominant cultural systems of knowledge usually emanating from the West. Not because they haven’t worked well, but because they can frame a collective way of interpretation. Hollywood cinema is a good example of this. Hence how do we align emerging ‘white heat’ technologies with different cultural values and critically view how their exploration may yield different knowledge pathways. For instance Sugata Mitra’s work, or approaches from say the Ashanti tribes of Ghana, Asian mythology, or Fan art that would influence cubism. I’m scratching an itch at what you’ve written and something I penned recently around thinking modes. Would love to share a coffee on skype one day. David
