(Speculative Fermentation conceptualization/writing in collaboration with Enya Von Schill and Ian Gerson)

 

Speculative Fermentation

organisms refuse ‘birthed’ state and become/unbecome to nother

(a result of life denied of air)

(this speculative fermentation is in question of/with what ‘birthed existence’ may entail/entitle)

kneading(needing)

Per second starvation---> eating their ‘selves’ to fill their nother bellies

            pulled at once from hanging bejeweled vessels,

pre-skins, as not yet

skinned to access the mobility they yearn for

Sopping up the last bit of yellow on our plate

sun-sighed

uncooked

Adjusting to the overactive-eating of the sun

: the culture has grown as shown on table L-S(1)

not the crumbs of what it was, but what it is-as-us

 

squeezing the rapid growth between our toes

a piling,

injection of intersections,   locking the not-yet

                                                                      the could

                                                                                       in the transmogrified state of nother

pickling the intestines so they're easier to digest

but while digesting the digestion they are dissecting an impression

of the many before-wombs and pre-verbal states in their used-to-be’s and potent potentialities

:as the situational self [nother] establishes no ground, their yearning suffocates (2) in incomplete shadows.

As dusk drips at the tip of digestion the situational self [nother] toils to un-earth(3) a

de-universalization/de-territorialization of discharge: as result.

 

exo-terra-established tyme

(de-universalizing//de-territorializing  terra-established time)

the nothers delineate in embody(ed) labor archives:

witnessing their ‘selves’ alongside self, shelved in decomposing becoming (4)

Slow-draw slippage

cuts rock,

yeasty pockets, sweat-wet skins, milked mothers

labored skins merge teas, yeasts, kraut, ferments, molds

passed(past)

To the lefts left in pulley handshakes

Uninterested in the suspension of disbelief

“Pertaining to theatricality + ‘reality’ = how a space that is tailored for specific bodies/identities can oftentimes be conceived as 'unrealistic'---'uncomfortable' to that who is not included.

This creates a kind of exclusionary experience for this particular viewer.

Is theatricality created by this viewer in response to their lived conditioning/experience and what they believe certain people and/or bodies SHOULD be doing” b.perry

collaboration as survival

decomposition as backwards walking in opposite direction in spirals

yearning

unbecoming what it means to be human/organism

challenging the hierarchical taxonomy used to classify and quantify organisms

(usually by means of productive or use-value)

(1) troph of less-deep sours

(2) result of life denied of air

(3) divorcing of terra-established time/space orientation

(4) unbecoming




 

a stumbling sore, (prior to rain showers) as if symphonic rays could stop such a stutter.

we revel in the techniques of maybe and we aren’t so likely to say aloud we are indeed relevant.

our joined parts siphoned—like gas; by mouth, through tubes; like veins.

the infiltration only begins here…

a scatter,

like wild cockroaches on cat food

embody(ed) archive:

what does it mean to archive unbecoming?

decomposition?

death?

failure?

the ‘unproductive’?

embodied archive—archive of feeling—archive of trauma—body AS archive

QUEERING ARCHIVE**

a collective archive of feeling——> memory —> hystory

collective yearning

 

how can we concoct a space which flourishes in the ‘unproductive,’ the waste, excretion, the forgotten or never had a chance, the discarded?

 

THIS SPACE YEARNS:

YEARNS FOR THE “use/utility/validity” IN THE UNCOOKED, THE RAW, THE INEDIBLE, THE REGURGITATED, THE CAST OFF, THE FORGOTTEN, THE MISTAKEN, AND STUMBLED, THE JELLIED, THE JAMMED.

not ‘one’ nor ‘i’  

 

how can power in itself ‘unbecome?’

 

can this happen by concocting a space that is interested not in ‘future,’ future-tellings, or utopia, but a space or spaces toiling in the possibility of possible?

one which isn’t constructed with a humyn standing on a hill, peering down with a furrowed brow and confused tinge,

one asking why ‘we’ can’t just get out of the mud as they did:

stepping left then right, left then right

reminding their self: “I” can do it

language wrapped in promises of life and continuing on

 

“on to what?” we ask?

for the ‘we’ standing in the mud

for the we neck deep and still locking fingers

for the we using the mud to draw up plans on bare backs

for the we locking arms  because getting out aint an option.
