...About the time when I first started making records, I was also starting to become aware of a new sort of organizing principle in music. I think like many people, I had assumed that music was produced, or created in the way that you imagine symphony composers make music, which is by having a complete idea in their head in every detail and then somehow writing out ways by which other people could reproduce that. In the same way as one imagines an architect working. You know, designing the building, in all its details, and then having that constructed.

Martin Wood and Sally Brown (2009) write: "A line of flight is essentially a movement of creativity, a practical act or a way of living that wards off or inhibits the formation of ‘centres’ and stable powers in favour of continuous variation and free action."
Interesting exchange here. Video of five-year-old (Oscar) and his dad (Dave) engaged in a learning talk about dinaosaurs (ok, I could not pronounce most of these names:). Followed by letter from Dave to Oscar outlining the misteps and revisions Dave might offer to resituate the learning as rhizomatic. My hunch? Children are rhizomatic: they are associational and a camera on Oscar as he played and perhpas a bit of parallel play w/ peer or adult would reveal that in some amazing ways. Oscar has some learning he wants to show us and I'd love to hear it. I am confident Oscar would help me figure out lines of flight.
I respect the honesty in this--how Dave 'tells on himself' and it reminds me that I (and perhaps you?) have been conditioned to situate the world as binary: true/false, good/bad, etc.
Dave discusses rhizomatic learning and nomad, with a focus on gardening aspect and in response to commentary by others. Perhaps equally important is that Dave does this talk while drinking coffee-beer. Cheers.
Breslar’s work is akin to a “line of flight,” the rhizomatic thought of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, that encompasses “all manner of becoming.”(3) Rhizomatic thinking conceptualizes outside of established, hegemonic modes of thought, rejecting the aborescent (tree-like) thinking characteristic of the grand narratives of modernism. Breslar’s NASA paintings embody this “acentered, nonhierarchical, nonsignifying system.”(4) They are both image mediation and manipulation at once, inhabiting the ideological, hierarchical information contained within its referents to form new “deterritorialized”(5) fixations on the myth of history, to “repossess our memories before they are handed to us.”(6)
In this paper I explore possibilities of using nomadology as a lens to look at what is happening in the lives of young women today, particularly raising questions of how they stand or move in relation to a web of discourses, practices, subject positions and spaces. Making connections between Deleuze and Guattari's influential work with feminist nomadic inquiries, I attempt to draw diagrams of multiplicities in the becoming of female subjectivities. Drawing on secondary analysis of existing ethnographic data, I focus on young black women’s 'moments of becoming' that can be described as rhizomatic: ways of being at home without being rooted in a place, an identity, a memory. In therefore following points of movement along rhizomatic paths of becoming, I attempt to rethink questions of what it means to be at home, what it means to be estranged, what it means to move in between space/time boundaries. Like a tent put up in the desert, nomadism, I suggest, shelters new images of thought about what potentially exists ‘outside’ any gendered and racialized social order framing young women’s lives today. Enmeshed in the complexities of these lives, nomadism further highlights analyses of new modes of being or rather of becoming, no longer constrained within closed identity boundaries.
Did this after listening to @onepercentyello read @davecormier's paper on #ds106radio and his presentation to @courosa's ECI831 class. Finished just in time for #change11 week with Dave as our facilitator and Rhizomes as our topic.
"...These rhizomatic learning lenses are not intended to make you see more clearly, per se, though you may or may not come to that conclusion about their effects. Rather they are intended to make you see differently...."
