Art is a strategy we all employ in different ways,
to learn about our ever-changing world.
The works here are means of developing active
sensory-motor schemas in others.
Artists and curators often expect
objets d'art, for passive, remote study,
as we might study dead bugs in petri dishes.
Instead, we are interested in art systems.
Active gross muscle coordination is essential to
the construction of these cognitive schemas.
This art/work centers on the (mostly spontaneous) strategies
we invent for turning rocks over,
in order to to interact with the fascinating world
scurrying about beneath.
