About: Robin was Born in Tangiers, Morocco, in 1952. He was educated at Worth Abbey and Hadlow College of Agriculture in London, drove tractors in Hyde Park, after which he became a self employed engineer/mechanic. He co-founded Mutoid Waste Co in London on 1983-84 with a five year series of squat warehouse parties, traveled Europe in 1989-90, and first came to Australia in 1991. In that year, he built a car-henge at ConFest and having seeded the Earthdream idea, convened Earthdream I. After returning to Berlin he arrived back in Australia in 1995 to continue the Earthdream project.

The Year 2012 > by Robin Mutoid

Year_2012_image Internationally respected co-founder of Mutoid Waste Co., Robin "Mutoid" Cooke is a sculptor, installation artist and visionary behind the annual Earthdream festivals in outback Australia uniting Aboriginal Dreamtime consciousness of the land with activist and doof music culture. Earthdream is a 13 year on-going experiment in the autonomous application of Lateral Governance systems within (and without) the activist community (Robin believes that the hierarchical systems are doomed to implode!) The philosophy of thought Robin promotes unites ancient tribal wisdom from Mayan, tribal and New Age circles, and tries to integrate it for the Australian counter-cultural community. Robin was recently showcased on the ABC's Stateline program, focusing on Mutonia, a large freak sculpture garden - including the 'Planehenge' sculpture - he has created over many years near Lake Eyre, providing a rich visual backdrop to his ideas and work. We present his provoking 2012 article here as a memetic bridge between cultures, from a white, anarchist elder of a tribe with no name, part of a global community still coming into focus.
