I have considered the weather and momentary states of queerness that appear and evaporate here and there, on the streets and subways and everywhere. Moments where everything changes yet nothing much can be seen. I have considered knowing, and different ways of knowing. Whose knowledge has access to the canons of knowledges, whose to their outskirts? Mainstreams don’t always have access to the sidestreams. Some bodies of knowledge stay in the sidestreams to be on their own terms, and this is good. This is also good. My attention is on the sidestreams. I listen to Tami T. I think of the wind. It is somewhat windy here.

It is as if nothing is happening.

I am not sure what this performance is about. This has now something more to do with than the beyondness of gender structures. This is about something else as well. Clouds. Or I don’t know.

Something. How to host something as a cloud? How to host something as something? All the time things are slowly changing and changing. All the time things are clearing out and distancing. They are not localised. Things do not become defined. There is something all the time. And now something else, already. Or I don’t know. Something else is happening. There is something else.

Landscapes beyond landscapes.

Something, something, something.
