Metronome No.10 (Oregon) is an instruction manual for artists who wish to live and work portably and features unusual yet vital hints for social and economic survival.
It is modelled on the long-running hippie survivalist zine Dwelling Portably, edited by Bert and Holly Davis and distributed from Philomath, Oregon, USA. In March 2006, while living and working out of a temporary, mobile publishing studio located in a RV, Clémentine Deliss, Oscar Tuazon and two Future Academy participants from Edinburgh (artist, Marjorie Harlick and neuroscientist, Guy Billings) searched for the editors ofDwelling Portably covering nearly 2000 miles of logging roads, and typed over 25,000 words on manual typewriters for this latest issue.
During this production period they built a ‘hill-lodge’ into the side of a south-facing slope in the woods near Philomath, digging out the mud bank and setting up tarps and poles to insulate the 3 x 2m cavity against the pouring rain and wind.
Contributors to Metronome No.10 include Ibon Aranberri, Nico Dockx, Didier Fiuza Faustino, Richard Fischbeck, Yona Friedman, Jan Mast, Christos Papoulias, Douglas Park, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Matthew Stadler, and members of Future Academy in Edinburgh, Bangalore, and Dakar.
The production was made possible through the support of Edinburgh College of Art, the University of Edinburgh, and Stephanie Snyder, Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College, Portland, Oregon, and the CNAP.
