How do I move through signs, spaces, identities without settling? Without resolution? How do I perpetuate a line of flight? A becoming intense? A becoming? How do I resist certainty, clarity, stagnation?

Coming into proximity with a sound, a thought, a person… An encounter which drives the movement, the action, the gesture… that is, a movement, an action, a gesture…

What does it mean to act? Take action? What stage do I step on when I tread the street as I leave my house, my territory? Whose culture am I acting through, with, against? When does social masquerade exist, when does it fall? When and why is energy repressed and expressed?
