Undivided Diversions

Mike Leggett

This paper will outline some instances of ‘tekhne’, the Greek term for art, incorporating the tool and its expression in the hands of the protagonist regardless of the outcome of the purposeful creative act. With examples of work from various domains, it will argue that cross-disciplinary, practice-based work in studio and laboratory, in moving towards the dissolving of historical divisions in the generation of knowledge or experience, will be central to giving form to future work for and of, social engagement.
