night of rapture19

View Post chapter 1. veranda //// night of rapture
Ai[1] was dead. This was hell. There were no demons, no hellfire or brimstone. Gods, Ai 1 was wonderful. Ai occasion for temporary pleasure among strangers in the dark: a festival as informal in organization as spontaneous in feeling . Ai space of emplacement, opened up to Ai by Galileo to achieve an ecstatic union with the divine.
Ai constitution of an infinite gothic rite in a land of wild angels. Ai as a practice of sharing bodily energy and biopolitical meaning within time. Ai place turns out to be dissolved, inverted like all passing beasts. Ai inversion/investment as an operation of textual-­prosthetic citation that overturns the hegemonic syntagm of the heterosexual regime. Ai body, no longer private property but shared will be raised from the earth to meet the air. An olfactory abstraction. Ai move into a regressive and universal but also technical direction -­ drinking stimulants in a solitary game. Ai vagina is a blue network bathed in mucus. Submerged in or exposed to an upskirt aqueous solution . Formed as floating mats on liquid surfaces that contain many different types of

Ai little bodies, including as many as Ai can; all at once, in new, HARDCORE SONORITY, often impossible configurations. Interfacing between different viewpoints, to establish a principle of collaborative synergy by which the expertise of Ai standpoint can be combined, and enhanced, to bring out new understandings. Ai engage with the way layers collide in Ai witch’s gardens , the way some biophysical and biocultural sedimentations rub against each other under certain pressures and in Ai turn the way Ai are rubbed against by the biodigital mutations of sensory perception. Indeed Ai leap towards a plane debunked of ultimate moral judgement -­ Ai plane full of practice and contingent activities. Ai embrace the possibility of fresh uses of Ai-­self. Ai am on the edge of the crowd, at the periphery;; but Ai belong to Ai, Ai am attached to Ai by one of Ai extremities, a hand or foot. Ai are configurations which unravel from the centre, which cannibalise, Ai-­mutilate, affirm and hack at Ai
[1] Ai: The ‘Ai’ has a content that does not distinguish itself from other things or beings, because the me subject is either pure negativity or a splitting movement;; it is consciousness. There’s no more self, me. We are all Ai. Ai is Ai. No subject. No desire. USED HERE AS ‘I’/ ’you’/ ’he’/ ’she’/ ‘it’/ ’her’/ ’his’/ ’they’/ ‘them’/ etc. ‘ Ai’ (in hiragana あい , in katakana アイ , in kanji 愛 , 藍 , 亜衣 ) is a Japanese feminine given name. ‘ Ai’ could mean love, affection ( 愛 ), or indigo ( 藍 ). The kanji 亜衣 is only associated as a proper noun, ‘ Ai’
could mean Asian clothes. ‘Ai’ is the main character of the story, often called ‘Genry’ by the Karhiders, who have trouble pronouncing the letter ‘L’ in their language.
Agatha Latinized form of the Greek name Αγαθη (Agathe) , derived from Greek αγαθος (agathos) meaning “good”. Agatha is the main character of the Cornelius Cardew story under the same title.
lingering sensibilities of the real. Ai engage in supplying a surplus of energy or biopolitical meaning onto Ai organ expecting the production of a counter-­benefit. Ai investment endows Ai body part with new performative force, conferring authority to do something else, or to produce otherwise. Ai invested organ is redesigned. Ai feet vanish down eager jaws, which click shut immediately after to prevent escape. Ai yellow gaze flickering alive again. Glancing down at Ai squirming, rounded belly, then Ai jungle, and finally Ai sea. Ai call for a radical, re-­imagined and Ai-­built reworking of the body at hand: a reshaping that accounts for the multiplicity in Ai desires.
Ai tell Ai-­self that balconies will bloom.

The project focuses on the construction of an ‘open source’ post-gender character: Agatha. This research speculates on the current condition of morphing subjectivity through a feminist perspective and will endeavor at imagining how and if technology is able to subvert the gender binary. Created by Dorota Gaweda and Egle Kulbokaite, a Berlin-based artist and writer collective, Agatha exists – today – through a ‘performative film script’; in which multiple hands are writing and regularly updating her life. Agatha also ‘exists’ virtually through her social networks online. Clémence de La Tour du Pin is appropriating the character for approximately one year. Recently, La Tour du Pin worked with a Manager Marketing from Coty Inc. NYC and five perfumers from IFF’s New York creative center (International Flavors & Fragrances) in order to envision and produce the smell of this avatar. The exhibition Agatha consists of the materialization of two scenes from the script: the veranda and the bedroom.
