Agape (Denude Study)

In contrast with Eros, the relational bonds of Agape find themselves to be a sort of distancing——and yet one that is stronger in tension than the physical-libidinal togetherness of bodies is capable in the former. Giving space, or imaginary threads of connection, the gaps of Agape are both a striving-towards and a falling-away in love and intensity. The fragility of process is always in question here, while consistency somehow endures.

Colonization is brought swiftly into micropolitical focus through this program of geosophy, our building of this distancing. A denuding of resources quickly made visible; an emergent calculus of force, energy and economy made visceral; ladybug, branch and water act as thirdnesses, tugging and pulling; tiny constellations of pain indicate threshold, speaking as necessary. These offer the subtle differences which prevent repetition from becoming habit and open the ethics of relation continually anew.

Then there are the singularities——the events so beautiful as to generate the imagined threads of connection themselves, the colourful gems of existence which blossom from gestures of contingency to live within the gaps. Their narration after the fact is irrelevant: what means and makes the world is the balance of fragility and endurance that produced them in the first place.

Agape is thirdness; is love.
