Prologue: Wandering Monks and Peripatetic Birds
Pages 4

Thinking in Place: Art, Action, and Cultural Production is the result of the past decade of wandering. Many of my adventures have been a combination of play and purposefulness. I have traveled to teach, give keynote addresses, offer a series of lectures, work in collective projects, visit specific schools, take art students on study trips, or attempt to write in remote islands off the coast of northern Greece. I have also moved around the world simply to dream deeply in extraordinary locations in the hope that I would become more sophisticated about the complexity of culture and better able to evaluate the potential of the species to evolve.
