i’m looking forward to meeting you all.. some info on the current state of my diagrammatic ‘process without subject’ in how to ‘get A life’: … i’m focussed on diagramming affectivity in psychophysical performance practice, through project-based research involving performance art, dance, video installation… informed by architectural diagramming, and theories of affect and cognition.
This sketch is an attempt at diagramming a process i’m writing about at the moment.. where you become a sponge by absorbing the building you’re in.. into your body, and then move forward when sponge body and building reach a saturation limit of mutual absorption (where moving becomes an impulse of also feeling absorbed by the building). The idea is that its a kind of topological transformation, but its hard to avoid diagramming in Cartesian coordinates.. although maybe indeterminacy needs a halfway space between the strange and the familiar. What i’ve tried to do here is indicate a recursion and double openness between sites of attention inside and outside the body, and the zones of indeterminacy they generate. Anyone have any thoughts on imaging topological diagrams?
