Lightstalkers is a professional and social resource for journalists, filmmakers, photographers, and professional travelers.
Sylvine Bois-Choussy's insight:
Lightstalkers live and work in uncharted, unstable territory, navigating the grey areas of geography and technology. They travel in countries that are still in development or recently destroyed, using gear just barely out of R&D. Lightstalkers helps them to help each other—it's how they pool our knowledge and experience.
The Long Now Foundation, established in 1996, is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in San Francisco that seeks to become the seed of a very long-term cultural institution. It aims to provide a counterpoint to what it views as today's "faster/cheaper" mindset and to promote "slower/better" thinking.
The Whole Earth Catalog was an American counterculture catalog published by Stewart Brand between 1968 and 1972, and occasionally thereafter, until 1998. Although the WECs listed all sorts of products for sale (clothing, books, tools, machines, seeds-things useful for a creative or self-sustainable lifestyle) the Whole Earth Catalogs themselves did not sell any of the products.
The YKON Game is based on a simple thought experiment: Imagine that the world is brought to a complete halt. Everything stops. No more business as usual. With the world being frozen, you and your fellow players can tinker with the world as you please. What will you change? How do you convince others to go along with your changes? And what about the consequences? In short: The YKON Game is a workshop, party and therapy session in one.
The immediate goal of The YKON Game is to function as a catalyst for utopian thinking. Bridging art, design and education, the game seeks to uncover ideas and novel scenarios that have not yet been considered.
On these pages you can find the reflections and working notes of the Resilients, people who imagine possible futures and prototype them as artistic experiments in living and working environments. We transform the concept of resilience into concrete practice by designing experimental social structures and situations and stress-testing them in real-life labs – our case studies in possible futures.

A personal monthly photo blog by a former Los Angeles resident who moved to Tehran. Featuring photos taken using a camera phone. To show that regardless of what any president would have you imagine, despite what any media outlet would have you believe, life goes on in Tehran and elsewhere in Iran.
Le concept est de proposer une exposition dans une cellule d’habitation, de type E, de la Cité Radieuse de Le Corbusier à Marseille. De mêler Art & Intime, d’en découvrir les réflexions et ressentis connexes.
Association loi 1901 fondée en septembre 2012, le PEROU est un laboratoire de recherche-action sur la ville hostile conçu pour faire s’articuler action sociale et action architecturale en réponse au péril alentour, et renouveler ainsi savoirs et savoir- faire sur la question. S’en référant aux droits fondamentaux européens de la personne et au « droit à la ville » qui en découle, le PEROU se veut un outil au service de la multitude d’indésirables, communément comptabilisés comme cas sociaux voire ethniques, mais jamais considérés comme habitants à part entière. Avec ceux-ci, le PEROU souhaite expérimenter de nouvelles tactiques urbaines - nécessitant le renouvellement des techniques comme des imaginaires - afin de fabriquer l’hospitalité tout contre la ville hostile. Alors que se généralise une politique aussi violente qu’absurde, action publique aux allures de déroute n’ouvrant que sur des impasses humaines - expulsions, destructions, plans d’urgence sans issues, placements et déplacements aveugles, etc - , le PEROU veut faire se multiplier des ripostes constructives, attentives aux hommes, respectueuses de leurs fragiles mais cruciales relations au territoire, modestes mais durables.
