The Penumbra of the Empty, Part V
I have three motions here,
1. A vertical motion—which I relate to the “dividing practices”.
2. A horizontal motion—which I relate to a passive (but nevertheless moving) subjectivity being acted upon by the vertical motion.
3. An anomalous “ecstatic” motion which is occupied by a “knower,” an "I."
The three motions connect together in what I can’t help but see as an assembly line. The vertical motion is the motion of a stamp press; the horizontal motion is the conveyor belt; the “ecstatic” motion is the widget sitting on the conveyor belt, moving towards the stamp press, which will very shortly impart its imprint onto the widget.
