Thread: Where is Kodwo?

    such a good question, myself and several friends have been wondering what kodwo has been up to. i picked up a mediocre album called Folky ( a comp of folk/electronic) just because kodwo had written the liner notes. i'd love to hear his insights on dubstep, reynolds has blogged a bit a bout it, but not all that much.

    Last times I hear anything abt Kodwo it was in relation to architecture. I saw him at a Sweatshop debate where he was on a real Archigram trip, and he's just contributed to champion of Brutalism David Adjaye's Public Buildings book, he's the guy who also did that amazing 'Within Reach' collaboration with Chris Ofili @ Venice Biennale 03. Kodwo seems to do an amazing variation of things

    Don't know if anybody saw this obituary of Octavia Butler by KE the other week - i only stumbled accross it today. FWIW i think the Tate Trienniel piece is fantastic, an odd film about Indian Socialism, Female Cosmonauts and evolution. Marker-esque i thought...

    Ha! I just walked past him twice in Goldsmiths College Library. At the moment he's talking to blonde ladies, discussing his brother's TV appearances. I will try my best to follow him around for a bit.

    I'm immersed in Afrofuturist/Sonic Fiction material right now from both sides of the Atlantic. Might pull a blog post or two out of it. Eshun's "Further Considerations on Afrofuturism" (New Centennial Review, 2003) is worth a read as a bit of an update on his thought since More Brilliant One quote:

    SF CAPITAL
    Power now deploys a mode the critic Mark Fisher calls SF (science fiction) capital. SF capital is the synergy, the positive feedback between future-oriented media and capital. The alliance between cybernetic futurism and “New Economy” theories argues that information is a direct generator of economic value. Information about the future therefore circulates as an increasingly important commodity.


    Also sections on Futurism Fatigue, and "chronopolitical intervention" via "histories of futures past."

    Question

    'Futurism Fatigue' might make an interesting link to k-punk's 'nomadalgia'
