If a blog is a like a journal, calicommons.net is like a community story. This story is individually curated but it is also promoted individually and collectively.

Cali Commons is built for the uncommonly creative, it’s a creativity incubator and an idea marketplace. We struggle with what to call ourselves, how to define the WHO we are looking for.

Luke Luc presents: EMERGENT COMPLEXITIES IN INFINITE SPACES [Mini-exhibit & Artist talk (@ 6:30)]
"We can define spaces for exploration. The echoes of the past are continuously recontextualized for the future. We build on our stories, on our understandings of what is and was.
