  1. a proposal for Tuesday’s recordings (or will these recordings be throughout the week?)

    to further explore the desubjectified collective (following the Arika Delivers A Manifesto performance)

    perhaps we can collect/create an amount of sources in response to the event (or specific questions?) including from people not present, paper reviews, our own responses, imagined responses? and record not our own but someone else’s response, spreading the (de)subjective collective experience across our vocal chords, creating a performative aspect, and dispersing responsibility from the individual to the group?

      the sentiment perhaps where considering an evacuation could be?

      while it may not be possible to polish a collective turd and improve it.
      it is still possible to enjoy it in all its resplendent ugliness and function, being a mix of organic and inorganic waste substance
      itself a mixed bag creation and accumulation. that may prove nutritious, toxic or non malevolant stuff.

      reuse, recycle, reduce, reform, rummage

      whatever – its some form of outcome

      as nothing is very hard to achieve

      salvage something
