Abstract / Summary

The text takes as its starting point a series of concepts and characters that appear in the work of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, developing a set of characters and a series of narrative trajectories. [From the book's introduction] "Neil Chapman and Ola Stahl ofer us a poetic fiction that dramatisee a number of Deleuzian concepts, 'lived' by their cast of invented conceptual personae. Chapman and Stahl's work brings together art and philosophy, sensation and the concept, in a prgmatic experiment calling forth a new earth, and a new people [. . .] Chapman and Stahl foreground the heterogenesis of the world, and the necessity of actively constructing it. They offer us a schizo-art for a schizo people, a poetic-delirious disjunctive-conjunction: a BLOODCRYSTALPOLLENSTAR' in which our 'and' finally becomes a 'mutating centre'.
