Abstract

Inspired by the divinatory practice of the Tarot, this collage series and accompanying text employs the potential of play, chance, and continuous reshuffling towards unraveling the humanist doctrine of separation. Through the conflation of implicit anthropocentric binaries such as nature/culture, life/nonlife, human/animal, male/female, mind/body, past/future, same/other, self/world, radical becoming in the ongoing now envisions a praxis of planetary subjectivity in which every Now moment is an opportunity for submerging oneself into the moisture of the W/ hole. Drawing from multi-species feminism, new materialism, and post-colonial theory, this project attempts to facilitate transformations from the static category of 'human being’ into the ecstatic process of ‘radical becoming’.
