The Infinite Turbulence

Initially intended as a regular blog, it quickly became a place for me to post the various texts I have written for others, so far mostly catalogue essays for some artist friends, amongst other things. Other kinds of posts may appear every now and then, but PhD work consumes my labour most of the time, so we’ll see.

The title of the blog is from Henri Michaux, who saw the constant breaks and folds of experience as the source of life and living; and the idea of catastrophe is taken from René Thom, who used the catastrophe plane to model the discontinuities and turbulences of living and contingent phenomena.
