#For sure #UNSURE

Ligeså meget som jeg har værdsat de her interviews. Ligeså lidt er jeg åbentbart i stand til at svare på spørgsmålene, sådan én efter én, eller én til én. For tiden er jeg mere fyldt op af spørgsmål end svar. Men jeg vil jo gerne bidrage, så jeg svarer med et online skumværk.

Et skumværk, fordi jeg for tiden er interesseret i alt fra skummadrasser til rumtidsskum (quantum foam)! Men jeg vil svare på det specifikke spørgsmål fra 58 J&K / Janne Schäfer og Kristine Agergaard, om hvorledes det esoteriske eller okkulte optræder i mit personlige liv. Jeg tror at jeg er “indviklet” i det spirituelle/esoteriske/okkulte, på samme vis som i mine værker. Det er ind og ud, det er både-og. Der er på den måde en åbenhed og en vis skepsis tilstede hele tiden.

Tilbage til skum eller rettere sagt #THoTH_LoPLoP_bed (The Avian Menance: Masturbatory Powertool for Levitation and Absorption into Foam). Domænerne Slit.Agency og Unslit.Agency er en del af det værk, der er lavet til udstillingen FLUID PHOSPHORESCENCE i New York. Det er et eksperiment lavet sammen med to fantastiske venner Synnøve B. Brøgger og Anne Ulrikke Bak. Koden til Unslit.Agency: AUBSBBLP.

Her en skummet slutnote til mit ikke-svar. Den omhandler SPIN Φ, som jeg lavede til Overgaden, sigils (masturBohrtion!), og den sengefetich jeg har dyrket på det seneste — de såkaldte masturbatory powertools:

start

#risk-risk-risk//thoughts(forms)_within_SPIN Φ

The core concept of SPIN Φ is the Sigil. Kasper Opstrup, who wrote the companion text for the work, has a “quick how-to work on sigilization: “…write down the object of desire and erase all vowels, leaving only a string of consonants. Squash the string down, throw out or combine lines, play with the letters, and end up with an appropriate looking glyph/sigil. In order to charge it, concentrate on its shape and evacuate all thoughts. These no-mind states can be reached in a number of ways, such as fasting, spinning, fear, sex, intense exhaustion, but the preferred way is that of sex magick (which stems from tantric yoga but was popularised by Crowley and the OTO). A very basic form available to us all is masturbation. You masturbate and at the moment of orgasm, or just before, you project the image of your chosen sigil in your mind’s eye. According to adepts one does not need to believe in it since it has nothing to do with faith. If it is done, it works.” So, lets delve into that, the SIGIL with agency, a will that transcends human exceptionalism, an energy that is withdrawn but yet emerging and potent. A massive force that, once activated, cannot be controlled, only charged and directed through mind/body concentration. Here, I will abandon all scientific discourse, and simply fuck right and wrong just to see how it feels! And it is precisely the “fuck it” part of it I will try to talk about, without the actual fucking. Masturbation, this passionate plea for pleasure, or not necessarily passionate and not necessarily plea for pleasure, but this yearning for relief, for release!

#I feel like I’m swelling @masturBohrtion.

And I ask: Is masturbation some kind of impersonal force that moves us, hurls us into some kind of lonely conjunction or nearness? Is it a thing (a doing) that somehow drives you down into some sort ofoneness or into an indifference, and drags you both closer and further away from the immaculate conception of the whole world? Or is it just the point where you experience yourself, confirming the precariousness of life. O!

The subject of “sexuality” virtually cuts through all scientific fields of research. Its central phenomenon is related to simply existence, being, life! Formation or the will or non-will to formation is fundamental to psychology, physiology, biology, sociology, chemistry and you name it. SPIN Φ offers Masturbatory Powertools in the shape of daybeds, as masturbation is believed to be the only way to truly activate a Sigil. The work is simply anchored in these muscular spasms. The function is to try to make the body free, to loosen thoughts, to soil your sign, to sully your character, to “make out” with the world and in that “lovemaking,” forget your wish — the seed itself. In that sense, forgetfulness is super important, the portal through which the new rise is a “loss of normative consciousness”! Forget the conscious thought or will, it interferes! Get an orgasm, they seems to say, and the world will open itself up. It facilitates some kind of self-fertilization, to breathe in and out, and let the breath be self-entwined in the process of leaving, in becoming other. Unborn! During pleasure, Wilhelm Reich saw the energy expand outwards. On the other end of the spectrum, he saw fear, anger etc. decrease that same energy, sending it inwards. It is the intra-action of the SIGIL and the muscular spasms that together and apart create both the one and the other! A string of pearls….Actually through her ass #Merkel_followed_by_Blavatsky. Halleluja! It all seems very uplifting! SPIN Φ tumbles around in this particular dizziness of both, never either/or.
