A:U in 79 words: A:U is at the centre of our world: A:U is at the core of our humanity: A:U is in the aesthetic: A:U is in the absurd: A:U is music: A:U is art: A:U is a movement: A:U is A:U.
Au is the elemental code for GOLD. I will explore what Gold is, how it is used and seen culturally. How it is used in art and aesthetic. Referencing the Golden Ratio and queer aesthetic use of gold. Part lecture, part humour, part rabbit, part gold finger.
