displacements — #2 ReFi: reality fiction

0 Posted by - November 6, 2014 - Journal

[ENTER INTO THE MAP OF #REFI]

A multiplied reality threaded in fictions. Masked and sneaky. Nonetheless, material. Unstable. A kind of spatialized white noise of mixed signals, the land of #ReFi ——— To come up with a clean and causal narrative becomes impossible. A contradiction in terms. The #ReFi call cannot be a three paragraph text with a few randomly chosen questions. A coherent linear fiction with setup, body and resolution, out of a reality which has none of it. To surrender the endless potential of fiction, of the real; the fascinating forces of the real, of fiction ——— Instead, we offer an ever-changing map of that reality-fiction mesh. A tool to explore and operate within an undifferentiated and evanescent territory with the aid of vanishing or fictitious reference points. A call to fabricate, to discover, to compose new fleeting configurations ——— The call becomes a territory, an instrument and an invitation to explore it.

Each time this page is loaded, the growing reality-fiction territory is randomly reconfigured from a series of proposed relations. You are invited to play around with them: pin down a concept (click-and-drag) and create your own proximities, overlaps and framings ——— Submissions to displacements #2 will work as explorations of this fugitive territory and/or as a reflection on the instruments and strategies needed to explore, move and act within it. We encourage all participants to submit their own personal #Refi territories along with their contributions.
