NOVELTY IN SPECIES OF RELATION

In my talk, I will present some of my recent moving image events. I will draw on the speculative ‘philosophy of the organism’ devised by Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1957). Whitehead replaces being with becoming,through relational events he terms prehensions. I will make a case that moving image practice produces expositions of this onto-epistemology. As all entities are events of feeling, and novelty occurs in every event, novelties in species of relation are therefore continually occurring.
