Street Light Orchestra Creates an Urban Commons of Music and Light

Street Light Orchestra Creates an Urban Commons of Music and Light | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The growth of a real sharing economy depends on community. And it follows that building community is greatly helped by access to common space. That's why cities have been hailed as the great bastions of innovation--the more opportunity people have to connect with one another, the more likely for cross-pollination of ideas.

Art and Energy - P2P Foundation

Art and Energy - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Two writers have recently contributed some theorizing about overall social and energy systems and the way they function that may be helpful to us in our slowly unfolding crisis. One is from art historian and energetic social thinker Barry Lord; it’s called Art and Energy (AAM Press). Briefly, Lord’s thesis is that the kind of art a society makes and values is joined at the hip with the kind of energy that society depends on to keep itself going. He traces the various forms of energy we have known as a species throughout our pre-history — our millennia spent in the Pleistocene — and in our recorded history — sexual energy, without which societies can’t continue; the energy of the body while hunting and foraging; wood for fire; slaves; wind and water; coal; oil; and “renewables” — and makes some cogent observations about their relationship to art and culture.
