Have you ever heard the sound of an egg rolling over a concrete floor? No, I haven’t. It is bouncing off another egg with a “crrrrrkk” that tells the tale of a calcium carbonate shell on calcium carbonate shell, a semipermeable membrane with two soft masses inside causing friction and momentum. Too complicated. An attempt to dispose of energy that otherwise would cause destruction. Shit. Then finally coming to a stop in a whole pile of salt, not to forget the butter in the crack. You clean up. Can you imagine this excellent sound? Listening.
Daughters of Chaos: Practice, Discipline, A Life was the 8th international Deleuze Studies conference, and the first to be held in Sweden
“In short,” Deleuze and Guattari explain “chaos has three daughters, depending on the plane that cuts through it: these are the chaoids – art, science, and philosophy – as forms of thought or creation.” The disciplines of philosophy, science and art are said to be the disciplines that enable the capture of what Deleuze and Guattari, in reference to the ancient Greek notion, call chaos. The daughters support the emergence of order out of fundamental chaos; they are like guides who assist us in making sense of things and in acting together to manifest new subjectivities, social relations and environments.
With a week-long writing camp on the island of Utö and a two-day conference and exhibition in Stockholm, the Daughters of Chaos made way for 130 selected scholars and guests.
