A lab can be thought of as a space for the nurturing of the generative self, in a network of peers. Here are some questions through which a CM lab reflects on what constitutes it.
- What concepts, resources and protocols can a space generate,
when it is neither a school, nor a place of work, or a home?
- How does a self-regulated space evolve, when, over time,
the energies shaping it from within become differentiated through
chronologies of entry into the space, durations of practice within it
and different commitments of time to it?
- What textures of regularities and rhythms does a space generate
through the diverse and individual excitements, wills, stubbornness,
desires and energies that come to reside in it?
- What kinds of minor practices can a generative space build to nurture
itself and to produce constant challenges for itself? How do these
transform when sustained over time in a space? How do they deepen
and transform the space over time?
- What languages and concepts evolve in a self-regulated, generative
and peer based space that argue out its sustainability, importance and
necessity in the locality it has grown in? On what terms does it renew
its ties with its locality?
