"A monument does not commemorate or celebrate something that happened but confides to the ear of the future the persistent sensations that embody the event............. a monument that is always in the process of becoming, like those tumuli to which each new traveler adds a stone."


(Deleuze and Guattari 1994:176)


This tumuli... or a cairn.  A cairn is a manmade pile of stones, which in modern times is often erected as a landmark, but in ancient times was erected as a sepulchral monument.  (They can mark a burial site, or can memorialise the dead)  We are not commemorating a death, but this idea of our monument being added to as our society grows is interesting.  What is it exactly within our society that we are commemorating at the moment? What is it that our monument  would be standing for?  What would it mean to our society?  How can we make it something that does mean something to us as a society?  Our monument could be something that grows with time.  A record of how we develop together, that will in the future bring back to us how we came to be.  Presuming that ultimately we shall all be harmonious hybrids, this monument could stand for the process.  

It might be interesting to have something that doesn't necessarily adhere to this hexagonal theme. The monument can represent our coming together by this 'growing' idea. On the other hand, if our monument is to represent our society then what better way to do so than with the shape that is so integral to our original manifesto. What kind of land will our monument be occupying? Is there room for a metal sculpture in our world? If we are living almost this cellular existence, how is it that we will find any meaning out of a rigid statue?


Opus incertum was an ancient Roman construction technique, using irregular shaped and random placed uncut stones or fist-sized tuff blocks inserted in a core of opus caementicium.

This idea of making irregular things fit together. Parallels with our beings, having such different qualities, yet coming together as one.

Some things and stuff

I want to see thousands and thousands of envelopes innered with Penny's motif. As well as bone china covered in it. That would be very good indeed. Bea I have yours, Rosie and Sarah I was wandering if you could send me some pen drawn versions that you may have around if you do? Hannah I need to collect you motif to try some things for flag nonsense and insignia/ coat of arms/ state arms (not that we are even a sate?.) I make some shapes. I need to do more research and sketching. Colours for hexagon: subject to debate, will probably have something simple/similarish to just hexagon on flag but in the habit of banners, flags and standards they very for different reasons and could have the arms in the middle. I dont know. Will try tessellate.

How about the monument as some kind of 3D manifestation of our hexagonal diagram.. Some kind of central orb, focal point, from which extend our original forms, or a representation of our individual beings, all pointing inwards into this central collision area. This could be something similar to a planet orbit model, where shapes/motifs gather around then meet at a central 'gravitational' point. Cell like. (nucleus in the centre) Snowflake like. ('spokes' reaching out from the middle) Or more thought could go into the patterns, and the combining of the patterns, so that out motifs run through consistently into the monument. Personally I don't really think this is necessary, I think this monument should very simply yet boldly epitomize the act by which we meet and unite. it should very explicitly represent this motion of coming together, and becoming as 'one' in the centre. So i don't think it needs to be too preoccupied with the transferral of patterns and motifs, but more so with the form and shape of the model.
Here are some images with varying levels of relevance... thoughts?
