Welcome to the Guide to the Entanglement website. Before we explain how it works, we want to let you know that this website is meant to be explored in a non-linear way. Getting lost is kind of part of its DNA: it creates a space to wander, a space often considered unproductive and therefore taken out of the equation. But we think redirecting our focus to this neglected space can refresh our perceptions, and even help us actualize change. If you feel just a bit too entangled in this web of diagrams, we have put together a small practice guide to help you navigate.
How do I get started?
This website is essentially a map inhabited by a growing composition of organisms. The organisms represent the people, communities, collectives, groups, and organizations we at Casco collaborate with. In the organisms-menu, you can click on specific categories choosing which organisms show up on the map and which do not. When hovering over an organism on the map, its name appears and in some cases a hyperlink.
How do I draw project lines?
In the projects-menu, there are names of several Casco projects. When you click on a project, you see a colored diagram pop up on the map. It presents a line that connects the organisms that were part of that particular project. If you click the same project in the projects-menu again, the diagram disappears.
How do I find out more about the projects?
All project lines are clickable. When you click on them, a separate window appears containing more information about each project. For further reading, most projects link to Casco’s main website.
Is there more?
Yes! Some projects (like Urban Trajectories) consist of multiple events or works. In those cases, you find a list of “events” in the main project window. When you click on one of these events, another window opens. Here more information is available about the event as well as related materials to browse, watch, or download.
How do I return to the previous window or homepage?
To return to the previous window or homepage, please click the “X” in the upper right corner of the window.
What about the ideas and methods?
The ideas and methods menus inform on Casco’s practice and that of its collaborators and partners. When you click on an idea or a method, a black or grey line shows up on the map. This line connects the organisms whose practices are geared by that particular idea or method.
I want to start fresh. Is that possible?
Yes, you can start from the beginning by clicking the Entanglement logo in the upper left corner of the webpage. Now, you can start with a blank slate!
Is this website static or will it grow over time?
This website grows over time as more organisms and projects are added.
My question has not been answered. What do I do?
