From "social projects" to "universal projects," I am extremely intrigued in what we mean when we say "project." Inherent in the word itself is a notion that some universal not only exists, but must be localized to become effective (i.e. the 'direct' and/or 'immediate' implications of the "project"). Also potentially valid is the consideration that in imagining/inventing/executing a "project," we also send, or project or deploy a conception, a potential universal or ideology on an extended, global scale.

Is it possible to commit to and/or execute an action on a private level without a public resonance? Is the personal (or small) always inherently political (or indicative of a greater 'universal' and/or have ideological implications)?

Where might the body, the physical, be situated here?
