with the collaboration of things we make sounds.
with our collaboration, things sound.
every body - person, plant, image, mountain, architecture, thing etc. comes with an impulse to seek alliances that enhance their vitality, striving to be more than the functions assigned to them. every body can consent or refuse to work with anyone-anything for any amount of time.
we begin to understand things as ‘actants’, a term bruno latour introduced in his book “politics of nature” as: “ […] a source of action that can be either human or non human; it can do things, has sufficient cohesion to make a difference, to produce effects, alter the course of things. it is any entity that modifies any other entity in a trail, something whose competence derives from its performance. ”
we witness the ability of natural and artificial things to exceed their status as objects and to exhibit independence and aliveness.
things collaborate with each other.
potentialities and alternative futures dance all around.
