post-semester pre-2012 snippets, like little truncated section cuts through my thoughts.
all these ideas, all these ideas. if there is like a snapshot of me right now, for the me in 2012, 2013, and 2014 looking back, then it's:
1) negate vs posit, negative vs positive, the critique vs design mindset; at any point there's nothing but either a a) reaction to the present and a modification/change that attempts to arise out of this present, or b) a willing suspension of understanding in favor for a placed statement that wishes to be neither 'new' or 'impartial' but rather simply is stated as being, as there, as what-I-would-like-to-see, and everything else organizes itself and mobilizes itself in order to move towards that future. posit or negate, it's like there's a single continuum, and there's only hope in the former and failures in the latter.
2) it's all people, really, just people, people and their relationships, people and their relations, and people organizing around people. eventually these organizations (between people) become coagulated and calcified into concepts that claim to be free of that initial medium. (for example, the way the word 'ripple' becomes abstracted from the material condition of liquidity, viscosity, fluidity and becomes an isolated way to describe a phenomenon.)
so there's nothing but people all the way down;
3) support each other, otherwise all is for naught.
