what do we mean by


8 technology  a.k.a. ecosophy a.k.a. 8

brings together particular ideas from science, digital technology, philosophy, architecture and art to facilitate sublime works that shed light on our contemporary ecology and being.

this site is both ‘art ‘ and ‘information’ in that it can tell you about what 8 does, at the same time it is created and tended near daily, in a deliberate, ritualised process of re-construction and re-creation, according to mood, season, context,

  1. -a durational work without duration -

a ‘technology’ of the every day,

towards a poor technology,

in the manner of a daily tea ceremony or tending of a zen garden, for your pleasure...

each page is unique: constructed with minor compositional variation.

spot the deliberate imperfections...
