{I decided to reflect on Jed Rasula’s talk because our CST session did not have time to observe on Tuesday}

What is meaningful about this:  “But Perry’s dad almost never made chords: he made anti-chords, sounds that involved those mysterious black keys and crashed in a way that was precisely not a chord, that jangled and jarred”? – Makers, 172.

“(Y)ou expected one thing, you got something else, and when your expectations fell apart like that, it was pure [ _____ ].” -Makers, 172.

“Periodicity is recognizing the challenge of any organism to go along in any continual flow.” – Jed Rasula

Last week Jed Rasula spoke of the possibilities and pitfalls of language.  Indeed, language shapes what is known and potentially controls what can be known.  In this, language is the color of our ordered world and is subsequently tied up with our expectations.


(Can we shift our structures of engagement with each shift in language?)

If we are approaching each new language in the same manner, does anything really change?

cognizant inhabitor of thresholds:

Is it possible to always be between periods,

in a continual state of becoming?

In this inhabited state,

improvisation would be our language (the body), and our use of it (the enactment).

Can we reflect experimentally?

Why do I keep communicating with the process of 3Dprinting in familiar ways?

By embracing the weird, the queer, the “jangled and jarred”, I open myself up to that space between places,

between what is known and what will soon be known.
