Manual, 2001-2006, system for continuously creating and destroying, photo credit: Isaac Appelbaum

In my work, I devise systems I do not fully understand, with the intention of attempting to understand them. Systems for interpreting and shaping desire texture daily life; a means to rationally orchestrate the world. Might not there be a need for systems which irrationally de-orchestrate?

Peter Flemming exhibits, teaches, and participates in residencies internationally. Research interests include ad-hoc architecture, intuitive physics, informal engineering, fermentation, neuromimes, solar power, waste harvest, saunas. Flemming’s work is a continuously evolving vocabulary of conceptual and technical ecologies, materializing in site-specific projects that are resolved intuitively and experimentally.
