Transferring, moving, forgetting

Spaces from above


“there corresponds to the constitution of a scientific space, as the precondition of any analysis, the necessity of being able to transfer the objects of study into it. Only what can be transported can be treated. What cannot be uprooted remains by definition outside the field of research.” (p20)


“A space exists when one takes into consideration vectors of direction, velocities, and time variables. Thus space is composed of intersections of mobile elements.” (p117)


“These fixations constitute procedures of forgetting.” (p97)
