Monnik is an interdisciplinary research collective working at the interface of culture, technology and consciousness. The work of Monnik concentrates on how persons and society need to reconfigure or reassess their relationship with their self-constructed modern world.

The Monnik feed is our stream consciousness consisting of newspaper clippings, dictionary entries, photo's, video etc — we try to tag/color-code everything according the projects we're currently working on

"He talks of the development of urban society (in America) as first an outflow in the 19th century from the small pockets of colonial urbanity established in North America in the 17th and 18th century. Then he talks of the reflow that is a reinforcement of these patterns of migration with the coming of new technologies, largely steam and the railroad. And then comes the inflow when rural dwellers are attracted to the city as the cathedral of commerce and cities are overwhelmed by population and traffic. And then he defines the backflow as the reverse process of decentralization which we now know as sprawl."
