the science of imaginary solutions – pataphysics

removing pieces of the dark teeming earth

take the dead for a walk

The People’s Liberation Army is not only bigger but they are also fatter. They no longer fit in their tanks and their rifle stocks are too short.

Something’s telling me that an average murderer would get as close as a foot from the head, but not point blank.

“That is, my own engagement with Deleuze originated, somewhat reactively, in a kind of dissatisfaction with the available discourses for explaining how performance works and why it matters. I came to value Deleuze’s philosophy in particular as a discourse that allowed me to question the representationalist and linguistic paradigm that the theory explosion seemed to have ushered in, and to recover the materiality of performance not as simple presence but as what we might called ‘differential presence’ or affective force. In this sense, I was not turning to philosophy per se, so much as to specific philosophies that provided the conceptual resources to rehabilitate the very categories that were being thoroughly deconstructed by the influential performance scholars of the time: “presence”, “the body”, “the voice”, “community” and so forth. At the time, turning to Deleuze meant turning from a generalized deconstruction that goes to work on what it perceives to be naïve appeals to self-presence and turning to an alternative position that conceives the presence of bodies in terms of a participation in forms of differentiation that are irreducible to discourse.” – Laura Cull

I am doing vague: so vaguely I’m responsible / and yet vaguely it doesn’t concern me at all. An angstlich vague. Listen, little vagues lapping. Then a tsunami.

The right to be forgotten is a fundamental human right.

Like the right to silence and the right to invisibility.

We the anonymous claim these rights.

They want some of the glory. They want to eat some of your skin.

He doesn’t worry about your gender, your nouns, your adjectives, or anything

Not so much that empire is against my politics as that performance is: for being goal-directed, formed for a purpose which is given.

Black box – ecology of light: symptomatics and theatre

Disruptive processes … As important for acting in the theatre as acting in the technological space

A question of ‘key’ collaborations as a determinant for the future direction of the piece

the weird world of WIRED’s tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman, R.I.P., 23 July 1967 – 2 February 2014

“He’s just conjuring up that same, incredible ability to act in front of the camera.”

“But we’re also sad to see him go so young because we suspect there were many more complicated, but thrilling characters yet to come.”
