Technogypsie.com is the creative brainchild of Oisin Rhymer, Thomas Baurley, Leaf McGowan, and associated contributors. The term Technogypsie was weaved by Leaf McGowan in 1986 to describe his lifestyle when travelling the world as a archaeologist, artist, bodypainter, and digital programmer/designer. Travelling to festivals, selling handmade arts/crafts, bodypainting, and tarot reading for his clients and then bouncing into research jobs, web development, field research, archaeology, anthropology, and graphic design in the following weeks only to repeat the cycle over and over again. For the good part of the 1990's he had circled North America 1-3 times a year.
|It was an adventurous life that led to his decision to co-write a book about the lifestyle. He soon learned he was not alone, he had met along his wanderings quite a few other "Techno-gypsies", "techno-nomads", "techno-tinkers", and "techno-travellers" who were living a similar lifestyle to him. The current collaborative team includes Leaf McGowan the bodypainter, tarot reader, writer, artist, researcher, and archaeologist; Oisin Rhymer the folklorist and researcher; Jenni Chaney the artist, barista, burlesque dancer, writer, programmer, web designer; Tom Baurley the researcher, archaeologist, botanist, artist, writer, curator, and GIS Specialist. Every month, more and more "Techno-gypsies" are being added to the mix to create a creative presence that embraces academia, art, science, folklore, botany, history, archaeology, music, design, found treasures, and entertainment.
Technogypsie Productions, Creations, Design, Photography, Arts, Sciences, and Networks is a collaborative project and entity to preserve the past, educate the present, and build for a better future. We do this by blogging, writing, publications, passing on folklore, art, science, photography, design, social networking, gifts, found treasures, services, and media distribution. It is a evolution of the Leafworks Network.
We strongly believe that the past influences the present and repeats itself upon the future. By preserving culture, folklore, arts, crafts, music, innovation, and the living myth of the past we weave a educated future. By dispelling myths and understanding where they come from, the evolution of culture can be better understood. By passing on the folklore and stories of the past will preserve that knowledge to live on amongst future generations.
By art, science, blogging, writing, reviews, photography, design, and the Living Myth - Technogypsie Productions shares with the world the history of the past, the conundrums of the present, and the premonitions of the future. By blogging and sharing the wisdom of the past stores the records of it to be preserved for the future and utilized by the present. Images, facts, tutorials, and lore that intrigues others will stick in their minds, be remembered, and hopefully passed on to their descendants.
