Artist, curator, and computer science teacher Love Leonce is co-founder of the Timoun Rezistans Art School, which teaches art and computer science to young children in Haiti. The seventh in this series about creatives using social networking to find non-local audiences is this interview with Love Leonce.
To build a society of safety and trust rather than security and
fear, we are going to have to act from the former rather than the
latter. I therefore offer a few modest proposals for how to respond to
the Boston bombing.
We couldn't have far-flung Empire until we
had writing and a standardized code of law; we couldn't have the modern
democratic nation state until we had the printing press.
We now have media technology that is fully interactive, and this
points toward "direct democracy," or "Society without a State."
exchange systems we are exploring blur the boundary between the monetary and
nonmonetary realms and therefore the standard definition of the "economy." How would we
measure it in the absence of a common unit of account? Ultimately, underneath money, is the totality of what
human beings do for each other.
