Asystems is an experimental publication developed by The Actual School as an output mechanism. Objects are released to participate in relevant discourses regarding cultural flux and the consequences of production. Actual dispatches Asystems to produce organized objects and renders them capable within an ideology and model of continuous labor; these objects are morphic based on their potential and are formed into either .iso files, mixes, or tracks.

The .iso file format takes an expansive work and aggregates it into a disk image for download. Within each .iso is a multi-media approach toward a designed thesis that develops the density and multiplicity of surplus found through comprehensive work. To ensure this, we alloy the disk images under the axiomatic of The Actual School — research, discourse, direction, production — as well as the Asystemic extension approach: flexion, disruption, and quietization. These methods are inherent to each release and Asystems deposits creative labor into these economized archive objects to be pragmatic in use, aesthetic in organization, and dense in array.

Mix and Track are works for feed. They are reliant on the fluctuation and flow of exterior creative platforms. Mix is an open-for-submission system that aims to intersect the feed with works that flexibly participate as well as asystemize with the aforementioned methods. Track is a closed system functioning as a heavily curated means of composing reliable music that disrupt Asystems with an intention for accuracy. The Actual School extends works from its seminars into these mechanisms.

As a radicle of The Actual School, Asystems is a partial viewpoint of a larger discourse surrounding the production of objects. Its function is to concentrate the works on this site as “Total,” as well as provide access to other machines under the Actual program. Reach out to Asystems or any compartment of the School for purposes of discourse or production.

A Flexible Anarchy

April 27, 2015

.PDF

A Flexible Anarchy is a defense and study of the concept of reformatting epistemology. Both approaches arrive at a realist argument for the "non-self" which is made into "self” only upon articulation. This argument describes a flight-of-self in a materialist and experientially pragmatic sense, as well as in a non-idealistic sense of perception. Though these concepts are stuck in historical, paradigmatic discourses, The Actual School renders their application into a labor that dispatches their use as an anarchy. The linguistic appropriation of anarchy can be read as the coexistence of independent materials — namely epistemological — that confront any line between sameness and difference. Such, the work arrives at a continuum of change towards an infinite repetition of systemic outputting. The study uses the defense’s socio-philosophical methods of filtration and modification to deduce conjectures of reality that are unstable, yet applicative to a self that is accelerating away from its constructive efforts. This “soft” trajectory is a line that can be traced in symbols but is only read upon performance. Ultimately, A Flexible Anarchy supports the labor of all and moves to parlay a non-absolutized, evenly distributed freedom within that labor, resulting in a reformattable work on reformatting.

An Object of Labor

February 27, 2015

.PDF

An Object of Labor is an exposition on labor, critiquing it as the unifying force behind objects, figures, and the “subject.” It puts forth two registers — actuality and totality — and challenges their causal continuum as a materialism of pure internal difference. Pulling from Peirce and Marx, the idea of labor is given paralogical and ethical depth with regard to complete openness, both reducible and producible. This allows for an infinite semiosis that in turn produces ontological, creative, material, and epistemological conditions with all idealism asystemized. The shape of labor, then, becomes flexible and heteromorphic, which ultimately empowers the worker and their work reflexively — an ever-changing labor, allowing for an access to an ancient and infinitely futuristic humanity.

Reflexes is a critique publication developed by The Actual School, issuing works that are self-critical and archival. The works released by Reflexes are primarily critical of the School, the theories of asystemization, and of the issues derived from para-approaches to societal shapes: i.e. education, technology, creativity, and manufacture. Self-criticism allows for a growth, as well as a multi-perspective transversal of problems arriving from autonomous leadership within institutions, as well as hegemony in cultural production. Reflexes is entirely open for submission; the medium is open, thus making Reflexes an experimental publication. textual, cinematic, audial, graphical, and applicational criticisms are institutional, though other mediums are welcomed.
