Next London Interface- May 20th


Really glad to annouce that Kaori Homme will be speaking at our next Interface event in London. We'll be meeting at the LICC again on Saturday 20th May, 2-5pm. Kaori is an experienced installation artist and tutor at Camberwell School of Art. Kaori will be showing her work and talking about how her faith informs her art.

Since this is the last London Interface of the year (boo hoo!) we're making this one a bit special. We're having a show-and-tell! If you'd like to bring some work to show to the group drop Ally a line on interface@uccf.org.uk or post a comment below.

See you there!

Consider:
The missing element in every human 'solution' is
an accurate definition of the creature.

The way we define 'human' determines our view
of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and
future. Important? Only the Creator who made us
in His own image is qualified to define us accurately.

Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly
developed, and sensitive perception of diversity. Thus
aware, man is endowed with a natural capability for enact-
ing internal mental and external physical selectivity.
Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends
itself as the superior basis of an active intelligence.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
ence intent on the development of perceptive
awareness and the following acts of decision and
choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
making process and include the cognition of self,
the utility of experience, the development of value-
measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
ation of civilization.

The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
creative process, is a choice-making process. His
articles, constructs, and commodities, however
marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
highest expression of the creative process.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
singular and plural brow.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
universe.

Let us proclaim it. Behold!
The Season of Generation-Choicemaker Joel 3:14 KJV

- from The HUMAN PARADIGM

INTERFACE IS BACK

After a break of one month I'm really glad to announce that Interface London is back on scene like an art machine.

Monday 20th. Food, discussion, prayer and all the usual stuff at the LICC, St Peters, London. 6:30-8pm. This month we're thinking about 'How does God define SUCCESS?'

A hot topic for all of us seeking to engage with the contemporary arts. Is it OK to have ambition? How is God's view of success differant from the Arts world? What happens if I'm a success? What if I'm a failure? All these questions discussed next Monday. Look forward to seeing you there!

HAPPY NEW YEAR INTERFACERS!!



Hello good people.

Welcome to a new term of Interface action. We have an Scottish event happening in Feb and all the usual fun and games in London. For your diaries next interface London will be on the 30th at the LICC 6:30-8pm as per usual. The speaker is painfully close to being confirmed so watch this space.

In the meantime here's some Art from Jill who graduated from Glasgow School of Art last year.I'm sure she'd appreciate any comments you have. Hope the beginning of term is God centered and redeeming.
