  TANGENTS: No. 3 - Micropolitics: Exploring Ethico-Aesthetics (*all tangents require Flash plugins)
edited by Erin Manning and Leslie Plumb
  Tangents for this issue are “molecules” from Society of Molecules - May 1-7 2009 a distributed international event organized by the SenseLab. Each molecule was composed of 3-10 people in 16 locations across the world. One member of each molecule was designated as an “emissary” and visited another molecule during the period leading up to the event. Emissaries deposited a “seed” with the host molecule and brought back a “recipe” to their home molecule. Molecular events were conceived as local interventions with ethico-aesthetic reverbations on a micropolitical level.
