PETER PETER PETER, Peter Mills (SE) 23.02.87 better known as PETER (Stateless) defines art as that which facilitates a space, a gap within the system, within social norms, which produces a dubitability of the state of things and allows a collective of persons to silently agree, not presume, assume or count on, but expect difference. PETER creates spaces which expand the creative process from initiation to documentation, by use of fundamental methods investigating the emergence of choice, perception and action, to refine the creative process by facilitating individual definitions, which are attuned to a subjective interpretation of a situation, providing direct democracy, action and agency.
