8 technology 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 and has done; at the same time it is created and ‘tended’, 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 tea ceremony or tending of a zen garden, for your pleasure...

each page is unique, constructed with minor compositional variation as well as built in random processes: spot the ‘acidents’ and deliberate imperfections...

8 was initiated by raphael jay adjani as a research project of goldsmiths, univeristy of london. It is now a stand alone project.

beyond the website, 8’s primary activity is focused now on:

a & p - art and philosophy.
