Formatted Abstract/Summary
This seminar explored aspects of Cathy’s PhD thesis currently in progress at the University of Sydney. The thesis focuses on notions of the artisan, matter and action in the DIY architecture manuals of Ant Farm and Paolo Soleri. These manuals are primarily based on their experimental works of the 1960s and 1970s in North America. In the thesis, there is a specific concentration on the collaborative writings of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, and their conception of matter-flows as it relates to the artisan. The seminar was a specific exploration of dynamic encounters and material flow in Ant Farm’s 1971 ‘Inflatables Illustrated’ video manual for creating inflatable architectures.
