Catalytic Conversation: Craft and the Hyperobject


ISBN: 978-1-7362447-0-8
Craft and the Hyperobject documents a Center for Art Research (CFAR) Catalytic Conversation held on January 29th, 2020 with Anthea Black, Garth Clark, Sonja Dahl, Jovencio de la Paz, Brian Gillis, Bean Gilsdorf, Nicki Green, Namita Gupta Wiggers, Anya Kivarkis, Bukola Koiki, Stacy Jo Scott,Shannon Stratton, and Lori Talcott to explore notions of craft through the structure of a hyperobject. CFAR’s Catalytic Conversations serve the creative practices of individuals and groups by giving them an opportunity to engage a small body of thinkers in ways that contribute to a project or line of thinking that is in development. These conversations are recorded, transcribed, and archived as reference materials for those involved. This particular Catalytic Conversation was the first that CFAR conducted with intent to publish.
