Here you’ll find weekly entries having to do with artists and makers, doers and dreamers and the STUFF amidst which we live and have our being.
These entries reflect my passion for the history of art and culture and the tangible materials and symbolic forms out of which these things are created.
Let’s find new ways to appreciate the details of the world, the hidden relationships between people and things and the patterns that seem to create the experiences of division and connection.
About JASON LAHMAN
I am a historian, essayist and poet. My historical work focuses mainly on early modern (late Renaissance and Enlightenment) philosophy and science and the cultural history of 19th century Britain and France. I am especially interested in how the materials and objects, images and beliefs, rituals and practices of every day life change over time. I enjoy writing about the arts and learning more about the worlds that artists create for themselves through the shared community of their audiences and their fellow creators of culture.
