Spazi Indeterminabili is an exploration of spatial and social orientations within national borders and social structures. It follows personal memories and portraits of space and spacelessness through the cities of Miami and Milwaukee. It holds onto the ideas found in Sarah Ahmed's "Queer phenomenology" that call onto the concept of disorientation as a radical form of resisting and being in the world.
way of the gods
by Lorenzo Gattorna
The mysterious stirs a reaction: an ah! This ah! is not an ah ha! or Eureka—that is, an exclamation of discovering an answer. The ah! response to mystery is more a dumbfounded recognition and appreciation of an inexplicable power or presence ... For Shinto, though, the point is to accept the awesome as part of the world in which we live. To deny or try to eradicate the wondrous mystery is no less than to run away from home." – Shinto: The Way Home, Thomas P. Kasulis
