Hosted by Eloise Sweetman, Sol Archer, and Marco Balesteros, the informal reading group meets fortnightly with soup and a new text to read together. The trajectory or theme of the reading group emerges over time and is determined by the group, which changes from meeting to meeting. In this way, the reading group turns the studio into a communal meeting place and the sharing of a varying range of knowledges and voices. There is no expectation to prepare for the readings in advance, but you are welcome to do so should you wish. We also welcome anyone that would like to listen, as there is no pressure to read aloud. The reading group is open to anyone who wishes to join in. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you will be attending and to receive the text in advance. We also invite you to bring an ingredient for the soup.
Time: 18:30 – 20:30
Dates: 24 November, 6 December, 20 December, 10 January, 24 January, 14 February, 28 February

Playing and Knowing from Homo Ludens by Johan Huizinga
When we want to perform a quantum measurement we make a seperation.
The quantum state and measurements are taken to be experiment of the gambler.
Stuff > Gambler> Future
The measuring device is not the eye, but rather is the hands.
The equipment use to measure is the extension of the gambler's hands.
Removal of the agent is the removal of the quantum measurement is the removal of quantum itself. They are interactive and co-dependent on each other.
Einstein's worry in non-locality was the basis of experimentation and the probability of isolating a 'zone' in order to conduct the experiment. With non-locality there can be no 'real' zone of the isolation and without that zone an experiment is persistently tarnished by the unseen' Sneezing in a faraway galaxy is influencing what is going on in the experimentation.
