Ether: The Nothing That Connects Everything
Skip to navigation. Coming soon.
Space - Aether - Ether
Diagrams the interconnections among cosmic consciousness, hermetic avant-gardes, and technological progress. In Ether, the histories of the unseen merge with discussions of the technology of electromagnetism. Navigating more than three hundred years of the ether's cultural and artistic history, Joe Milutis reveals its continuous reinvention and tangible impact without ever losing sight of its ephemeral, elusive nature.
The true meaning of ether, Milutis suggests, may be that it can never be fully grasped. A valuable example of how we might begin to rethink our discipline and consider texts horizontally, in relation to contemporary culture outside the field, as well as vertically in terms of the ongoing evolution of the genre itself. Every culture has its own word for this nothing.
Synonymous with the idea of absolute space and time, the ether is an ancient concept that has continually determined our definition of environment, our relations to each other, and our ideas about technology. It has also instigated our desire to know something irrepressibly beyond all that.

In Ether, the histories of mysticism and the unseen merge with discussions of the technology and science of electromagnetism. In doing so, he demonstrates that fading in and out of scientific favor has not prevented the ether, a uniquely immaterial concept, from being a powerful force for material progress. Milutis deftly weaves the origins of electrical science with alchemical lore, nineteenth-century industrialism with yogic science, and network space with dreams of the absolute.

Linking the ether to phenomena such as radio noise, space travel, avant-garde film, and the rise of the Internet, he lends it an almost physical presence and currency. Joe Milutis is assistant professor of art at the University of South Carolina. Joe Milutis has spun together a fascinating and complicated network of associations—artistic, scientific, intellectual, and popular—about how we understand the concept of the space between things. And the fact that he picks and chooses his examples based entirely on what inspires him personally is understandable. Sorry, but we can't respond to individual comments.
