This quality of movement is not: it acts. As pure duration, the interval creates a schism in linear time, preserving the future in the present. The time-slip of the interval is the future anterior: the will-not-yet-have-happened. The interval never marks a passage: it creates the potential for a passage that will have come to be. This duration is defined less by succession than by coexistence, virtually. Incipient Action Repetition is at the heart of the interval. The structure of repetition-in-duration is not one of resemblance but of difference.
Play with what’s left over, share it. Incipient Action Mobile axes are the specialty of the interval that can morph and recompose at will. The stable axis of Cartesian geometry never creates movement: it produces displacement. To create movement necessitates a metastable sense of balance, the extrusion of a line into a plane: energetic recomposition. To the forming-matter / mattering-form that is the embodiment of pure plastic rhythm, the interval adds the potential for energetic materiality-in-movement.
To move is to exfoliate. Intensive affects are added to matter-form such that the envelope we thought we could decipher is no longer what is tangible. The effects of the virtual are felt. Relationally, we move through these effects, experiencing the texture of the interval.
