“The work of inhabiting a space involves a dynamic negotiation between what is familiar and unfamiliar, such that it is still possible for the world to create new impressions, depending on which way we turn, which effects what is within reach. Extending into space also extends what is “just about” familiar or is “just about” within reach.” p.7-8, Queer Phenomenology

“Lines are both created by being followed and are followed by being created. The lines that direct us, as lines of thought as well as lines of motions, are in this way performative: they depend on the repetition of norms and conventions, of routes and paths taken, but they are also created as an effect of this repetition. ” Page 16, Queer Phenomenology

“lets mediate on the idea of a “[self] with multiple selves” and acknowledge that the construction of a self, creative or otherwise, is complex.” Glitch Feminism

“The oblique romance of Internet-as-utopia, against this backdrop of reality, should not be dismissed as naive… it continues as a survival mechanism…Using the internet to play, perform, explore still has potential. Giving ourselves this space to experiment perhaps brings us closer to a projection of a ‘sustainable future.” Glitch Feminism

“Imbuing digital material with fantasy today is not a retro act of mythologizing; it continues as a survival mechanism.” Glitch Feminism

“It is a ghost of an image, a preview, a thumbnail, an errant idea, an itinerant image distributed for free, squeezed through slow digital connections, compressed, eproduced, ripped, remixed, as well as copied rand pasted into other channels of distribution.” In Defense of the Poor Image

Altogether, poor images present a snapshot of the affective condition of the crowd, its neurosis, paranoia, and fear, as well as its craving for intensity, fun, and distraction.” In Defense of the Poor Image

“there is another path that isn’t full of stress, self-doubt, pain, victimization, and suffering. There is a path in which everything is learning, playing, practicing, doing things anew. ” P.16, Pleasure Activism

“seeing things and seeing absolute nothingness” Black and Blur

“Over the past few years, I’ve been thinking and writing about contemporary art and the phenomenon of blur that sometimes happens both in and between artworks. You could think about it as a kind partition in refusal of partition; a general assertion of inseparability, which never the less still moves in and as a ubiquitous and continual differentiation; a breaking or cutting or scoring, if you will.” Black and Blur

Practice Based Research in Children’s Play: Children, mobile phones and outdoor play

“Children at play are always part of an ongoing process of assemblage; even the solitary playing child interacts with an environment, material objects, words, ideas or imaginary actants. Each element affects and is affected by each other, only coming together at a specific point in time and space in a time-limited grouping in which elements enter, leave, and change over time, sometimes emerging considerably altered.”
