A Non-Linear Fable of Micro-Nows

Performance & Writing
A performative psycho-pseudo-philosophical investigation, where perceptions of reality meet in form of concept, writing, and performance.

Dyptichon – Occupy the Unspoken, 2021 

An A-Linear Fable of Micro-Now’s explores speculative auto-science as a way of experimenting with the perception of the present. By looking closely at social micro-phenomena such as The ALMOST and The Space Between The Lines, we aim to open a speculative interrogation of how social fabrics are woven and their patterns designed.
This auto- experimentation develops its narratives by paying attention to how the present unfolds itself almost like a negotiation between belief sets, thinking patterns and emotional impulses. All together they seem to conspire to form a speculative composition of the NOW of the – I. 

Inspired by the practice of des-identification as proposed by Paul Preciado, this performative investigation wants to follow the thread of experimental self-inquiry – in order to construct a speculative and conceptual model of the NOW and ways to maneuver the social. Following a practice of deconstructing and disidentifying from selected social phenomena – I aim to create a performative glimpse into intimate, personal, and speculative cosmologies. Not as a practice of re-imagination, but as a matter of thinking- with, and observing within.

The LINE (2021)
The LINE, is a performative reading, where perceptions of reality meet in a spatial form of concept. Through the text I explore space as a narrative of closeness and distance, shared experience and as a way of experimenting with the perception of the present through the line. This text pays attention to how the present unfolds itself almost like a negotiation between belief sets, thinking patterns and narratives. By looking closely at social micro-phenomena that constitute the I and the Other, the performative reading proposes a speculative interrogation of how social fabrics are woven and their patterns designed.

The LINE (2021) was performed at:
PRAKSIS – PRAKSIS Residency 18, ‘Perfection/Speculation’ (2020–2021) with Adam Peacock and Karmaklubb* Oslo.
