Noodling the Nodals, Nodal Hamlet: Difference and Repetition, Extreme Performances, Remembering to Forget
To fugitively explore is to track irresistible and elusive subject matters, to journey the undercurrents of semiotic streams, not in the interest of absolute capture, but to balance on a nodal of understanding, where affective forces significantly meet, until we move off. Afterwards the noodling resumes, and we improvise on the memories generated, negotiate past, present, and future, navigate repetitions and differences, until we find ourselves lingering felicitously on the indeterminate edge, rushing nowhere in the capricious winds of inevitable change, we go. And along with us go the traces of our journeys, reverberating with the streams of our performances.
