Even though I swore I wouldn't, due to the horrible, painful theory paper I ground out last spring, I'm back to thinking and reading about deconstruction. The absence and the presence and the other and same-self and blah blah blah.

And so, I couldn't help but be reminded of my kitchen, which is currently under deconstruction. Kind of. I mean, it's certainly not a "mindful dismantling," I don't think...

Here's the before:

Today the room is empty, so maybe now construction begins? Of course, the time in between the moment I decided to write "now," and the time I actually typed it made it so "now" doesn't really exist.

I don't think there's any way to be sure.

I certainly don't want to be accused of privileging the product over the process. Binary = Bad.

Blah, blah, blah is right. You should have sworn off that stuff. The product is a big piece of it baby. Now I'm typing and NOW, I'm not.

Even though we may not really know what any of that means, you sound very much like you know what all of that means. You know?

I know this makes me a nerd - but i'm totally intrigued by your thoughts on deconstruction!
