Always More Than One: Individuation’s Dance by Erin Manning

By Erin Manning

In Always greater than One, the thinker, visible artist, and dancer Erin Manning explores the idea that of the "more than human" within the context of circulation, notion, and adventure. operating from Whitehead's technique philosophy and Simondon's concept of individuation, she extends the recommendations of circulate and relation built in her prior paintings towards the inspiration of "choreographic thinking." right here, she makes use of choreographic pondering to discover a style of notion sooner than the settling of expertise into verified different types. Manning connects this to the idea that of "autistic perception," defined by means of autistics because the wisdom of a relational box sooner than the so-called neurotypical tendency to "chunk" adventure into predetermined matters and items. Autistics clarify that, instead of instantly distinguishing objects—such as chairs and tables and humans—from each other on coming into a given surroundings, they event the surroundings as steadily taking shape. Manning keeps that this mode of knowledge underlies all notion. What we understand isn't first a topic or an item, yet an ecology. From this vantage element, she proposes that we give some thought to an ecological politics the place circulate and relation take priority over predefined different types, akin to the neurotypical and the neurodiverse, or the human and the nonhuman. What would it not suggest to embody an ecological politics of collective individuation?
