In 1974 Pablo Neruda published his best-seller “The Book of Questions” : poems in the shape of questions, observing whatever surrounded him , with the wonder of a child. Is in this spirit that the project ” The ( New) Book of Questions” is founded: to observe and question the “territories in process” we live in, rather than to “answer” them. This is a collaborative project. Be part of it.
Twitter as learning device. | Twitter allow us to have, in real time, an amazing amount very interesting and valuable “information-pieces” on the territory and its many agents of transformation: articles, events, books, projects, exhibitions, amongst others, from a lot of corners of the world. All the tweets are, in many cases ,the core of what is published in Nomadicity. Everything archived in THNMD platform, in any of its channels, is shared via Twitter.
How many echoes can a project/event have ? Storify is used to track these. It helps us find more users focusing their research on the same subjects as THNMD, and the daily reads increase, hence the information we can re-share, making it accesible to more people.

“Plustank : Narratives through sacred cultural symbols” is an image archive accomplished while perusing the web and printed media. It can be understood as a story-tell of the beautiful, the delicate,obscure,forbidden,cryptic of our society through history. By clusters they explain a specific topic in our culture and how this topic was captured: lensed, shaped, or draw, and communicated to the masses. By isolating each image, it becomes the protagonist of its own visual power. | Note: Contains explicit material.
