Episode 2 of Neven Lochhead’sradio art series delves into the dynamics of an ongoing, informal learning experiment which Lochhead is constructing with and through the Dark Matter Playgroup: a nomadic mentorship-based program initiated by Agnes supporting adaptive forms of collectivity and artmaking under the conditions of a global pandemic. Lochhead’s contribution as a mentor to the program has been taking shape as a modular, assignment-driven, peer-to-peer learning habitat – a heavily modified remix of an open educational resource (OER) designed by Neil Mulholland at Edinburgh College of Art called . This poly-vocal episode features an asynchronous exchange with Mulholland as the project’s distal mobiliser, before a cascade of workshop scores transforms the broadcast into an OER itself, landing the listener in the thick of an interwoven and itinerant site of study, featuring activity reports and other sonic artefacts from the Dark Matter Playgroup.
