Gilles Deleuze: “When a language is so strained that it starts to stutter, or to murmur or stammer … then language in its entirety reaches the limit that marks its outside and makes it confront silence. When language is strained in this way, language in its entirety is submitted to a pressure that makes it fall silent. Style—the foreign language within language—is made up of these two operations; or should we instead speak with Proust of a nonstyle, that is, of ‘the elements of a style to come which do not yet exist’? Style is the economy of language. To make one’s language stutter, face to face, or face to back, and at the same time to push language as a whole to its limit, to its outside, to its silence—this would be like the boom and the crash.”
1. A new topology from “2D” to “3D” space, bringing the coils of “boundaries” to a rigid yet pliable foam.
2. Time constraints: 15 minutes of movement, followed by 5 minutes of writing; 30 minutes of movement, followed by 10 minutes of writing; no talking; record to video; discuss at the end of process. Engage any objects within the studio space in such a way that their tendencies or movements are “indirect”.

Erin Manning: “What takes form as we move is the actualization of virtual potential rich in each displacement. The eventness of movement is a virtually concretized differentiation of matter-form that creates a dynamics that is of the order of speed itself.”
