“DANCING WITH PLATO AND FORT: CROP CIRCLES, COSMOLOGY AND ANCIENT METROLOGY”
I would like to apologize for being a bit late in posting anything about the John Michell Symposium. Sponsored by Temenos Academy, it took place at the Art Workers Guild in London on the 1st of June. The next morning, I found myself in something of a work crunch, with about five short deadlines to meet.
It was a good event. Fewer people came to this symposium than to the first one, but that was not too surprising. Feeling was running very high in 2010, with the death of John Michell very fresh in people’s minds and hearts. With this symposium, we are moving into another phase, with less emphasis on reminiscence and more on evaluation. It is a natural process. Temenos Academy, an educational charity co-founded by Kathleen Raine and Keith Critchlow, is an excellent sponsoring organization for this purpose. Altogether, about 70 to 75 people came to the second symposium and the event was in the black. I intend to organize another one, but probably not for two or three years.
