Writing the incalculable: A second interactive inquiry

Ken Gale, Jonathan Wyatt

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article, the authors search for an understanding of where words lead us. By writing for each other, they look for the "promise of the text" (Cixous, 1998/2005, p. xiv). They explore the experience, at the moment of writing, of being immersed in multiplicities (Deleuze & Guattari, 1980/1987) and the way a path can go anywhere. This article investigates the disturbances around the traditional intentionalities of writing: the absences of presence; the multiplicity of signifiers; that alluring attempt to trap experience, on one hand, but also the delight in articulating and metamorphosing it on the other. The authors discuss the rhizomatic complexities that fold and unfold thoughts and feelings.
