Etymological clues/Epistemological reasoning

Apparently, our ambitions in supporting the studio practice with some technological facilitation coincide with some etymological relevance.

Techne (opposite of episteme – theory of knowledge) means art, craft, and practice.

(Perhaps another line of reasoning over the ways of bringing theory and practice closer together in their mutual complementation?)

Our epistemological ‘how known’ takes us along the concerns about conditions that make the knower know, and the mover move. We see a potential in using technology when studying those interactions between the knower and the known and the circumstances of such interactions, especially for introspective observations.
