Abstract or Description:

This published (3rd) meditation on 'Radical Matter' was developed over a two year period.
Its first incarnation was given as Keynote at Modus Operandi: Uncertainty, International Conference at the invitation of María Angélica Madero, Directora Programa Artes Plásticas,
Facultad de Artes Universidad El Bosque and Carolina Cerón Castilla, Departmento de Artes, Universidad de los Andes, Facultad de Artes y Humanidades, Bogotá, Colombia, 18-21 October 2016. It was introduced by the musical score/composition: Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and delivered with the film Paris is Burning, Dir. Jennie Livingstone, (NY: 1991) in the foreground.
A second version was subsequently trialed at the Lessons in Physics Conference, mac Gallery, Birmingham, 18 Nov 2016. This time in complete blackness with no musical or visual accompaniment, and an emphasis, in the main on Einstein’s ‘spooky action at a distance’.
Its debut at the Oxford University Philosophy Society and Ruskin School of Art, 10 May 2017, sought to highlight encounter, attunement, diffraction and the radical matter to which this kind of encounter, attunement, diffraction leads. The piece begins with Nietzsche's iconic attack on idealism, develops the argument relying on Arendt's re-staging of Cartesian doubt, and ends with a meditation on 'sticky cohesions', derivative markets/debt and the rise a a new form of matter I name 'radical matter'.
