Gean Moreno’s own words about his practice: Over the last few years, after driving a straightforward studio practice to a dead-end, my production has followed two general lines, often at the edge of other fields, such as design research, and willing to promiscuously appropriate their modes of production. The first line is structured around research on material culture and emergent urban formations. Often undertaken in collaboration, the end results are texts and “diagrammatic” objects. These “diagrammatic” objects are artifacts that somehow contain the traits and dynamics of the urban forms being researched, and often look for ways to tweak these, to mine potentialities that may be latent in them. Very often these objects adhere to a functional logic. The second line is driven by a desire to produce knowledge-sharing platforms, such as publishing companies and alternative pedagogical initiatives. This has been undertaken both inside institutions and independently. In 2008, for instance, I started [NAME] Publications. To date, it has generated a dozen books. I have also worked on a number of informal, para-academic educational programmes. This second line is undergirded by a deep authorial ambiguity, as there is no distinction—at least for me— in these projects between being “artist production” and actual functioning non-profit entities or day jobs.
