Means of operation

Means of operation

Treat medium not as an issue of its history but in order to actualize concepts

History is a found object

Pleasure and survival

Survival involves tactical engagement and pragmatics/ speed decisions rather than mapping and narrativising. There is no narrative.

Being actual
Is not about reality but the virtualisation of reality

We say performative only because there is not another term

Understand that this is not a cultural product but a social product

There is no mode of address here that is particular, that keeps certain operations from taking place.

It repels like a mirror, and asks different questions in a direct way.

Do you see yourself???
DO you see yourself???

Endless rearticulation, miming (examining space and time without any knowledge), for another, not for internal process, not for the thing itself

The mirror is the center

Be present with the materials as operator of other systems


The difference between skills, qualities that enable survival and those that enable courtship and pleasure

Replace every use of the word object with skin
There is only surface
I hate sculpture
There is no sculpture
Body, yes
But not object
Body is already texted and mapped and coded to be just sculptural
To be object - like
It is far more complex and far more direct

There is power yes
And waves
And there is a condition in which the wave has hit and which we are surviving and finding territory

Sometimes politics, are the waves (forces/the real) which are forgotten and repressed, thrown away from the conversation, under the conditions of the new function of floating and selling.

Repetition that is not a result of LACK of the efficacy of the signifier
Repeat the thing that functions
Not repeating to produce the real condition of its emptiness. Like if you say a word so many times that becomes a sound not a sign.
I repeat mechanisms, like flirting in a way that WORKS. Flirting WORKS
And you do it over and over again
Not because you want to show that flirting is empty. But because it does WORK

This is the bird showing its color and breast in the mating ritual. It is an efficient and necessary gesture that is repeated over and over again for survival.

Did you see your desires in my excess?

It is surface
Any surface
Making territory
It is repeated creation of surface and design that seduces.
In this case seduction creates territory

Territory is only ever made through the repetition of an aestheticized sign in a social milieu. A milieu of an exteriority

History is for strength not for sign
I don’t want sings and death narratives and I don’t want to massage history
I want to give backups to people who need them, not to melancholic narratives of artistic activity

And maybe I want to give seduction to other people
Things open to use by others

Relationship is here
Relationship is not here


Happy Endings

It could be better if you weren’t feeling guilty
How can you ?
In every club each one waits for you
To come by
With the dirty jeans and your crappy shoes
Where are you now?
Filling holes, with news and lousy noise?
Everybody is waiting for you in the club

It could be better if you weren’t feeling so guilty
Suck a strange moment in those
Every parts of sand of yours
Point slightly the dirty point
Exactly the same than curry on
Break forms
Illusive time
Take over
Your hands and stop me
Club those lights and smoke machines
Little sugar sweat
Jump off me
I like this guy over there
Not you
Every corner of page
kissed by you
Yea at this spot
Over there

It could be better if you weren’t feeling guilty
Sretch your mind
Look around
Every corner of page
Yea at this spot
Over there

The common is already there
I am the common
I am nothing
I am just a common
It is like I'm going to the super market
Or you get home and you make your bed
That's why I hate dirty beds

That's what you said?
That's what you said.

The example

The example
On one hand every example is treated in effect as a real particular case; but on the other, it remains understood that it cannot serve in its particularity. Neither particular nor universal, the example is a singular object that presents itself as such, that shows its singularity.
Hence the proper place of the example is always beside itself, in the empty space in which its undefinable and unforgettable life unfolds. This life is purely linguistic life. Only life in the word is undefinable and unforgettable. Exemplary being is purely linguistic being. Exemplary is what is not defined by any property, except by being called. Not being-red, but being called-red.


Nothing about love

I don’t know anything about love
I would reinvent
Some of it
Instead of pretending to
This is what we’ve got
Passing the sugar
Three moments and stops
All over you
Since the begging
You’ve been telling stories of your past
Battles in the sea
Waves more
Waves more
Sudden distance
Acoustic my lips
Since the begging
You’ve been making marks on the ground
To earth
Bones of

That is to say, once more, that my perception is outside my body, and my affection within it. Just as external objects are perceived by me where they are, in themselves and not me, so my affective states are experienced there where they occur, that is, at a given point in my body. Consider the system of images which is called the material world. My body is one of them. Around this image is grouped the representation, i.e. it's eventual influence on the others. Within it occurs affection,i.e its actual effort upon itself. Such is indeed the fundamental difference which every one of us naturally makes between an image and a sensation. Where we say that the image exits outside us, we signify by this that it is external to our body. When we speak of sensation as an internal state, we mean that it arises within in our body. And this is why we affirm that the totality of perceived image subsists, even if our body disappears, whereas we know that we cannot annihilate our body without destroying our sensations...
But we have to take into account the fact that our body is not a mathematical point in space, that its virtual actions are complicated by and impregnated with real actions,or, in other words, that there is no perception without affection. Affection is, then, that part of aspect of the inside of our body which we mix with the image of external bodies;
