Art, Process and What Neurodiversity Can Do (essay coming soon)

“Affective ruptures - “which themselves utilize existing materials - are the fertile ground for new forms of representation, new signifying regimes. Deterritorialization is always accompanied by reterritorialization in this sense. A minor practice must then be understood as always in process, as always becoming - as generating new forms through a break with, but also utilization of, the old. It is also in this sense that the argument might be made that a practice can still be ‘activated,’ or become minor, even it is located ‘within’ a major institution, or has otherwise ‘become major’” - Simon O’Sullivan. Art Encounters: Deleuze and Guattari, 2006, 73.

Space, Time and Perversion, 1995, 6.
