nature's indifference
\\ Utter (trace) this–appear. How does this will appear? "For a plant, the whole world is a plant" (Nietzsche in Sarah Kofman Nietzsche and Metaphor London: Athlone, 1993. 63). This dissolving text-form is a kind of foundation for the image to sit on. On no account should the words surround the image, this would enclose the image, frame it. Both present and absent, I wish this too literal-little trace would disappear, (image—text; event—archive; disaster—tourism; 0n-click—information), I want to rub it with my fingers, blur the neat white outlines that attempt a reckoning with duration and a calculation of extension. (How many times was the ash-full barrow wheeled to the end of the landing stage? "a simple assemblage of beams, of scaffolding." (Kofman NM 60-61)) But if I do that, make the blue–blur–blau, what will be left for you to read? How can I share with you the small thing I want to tell? (Sending taking.) Trees whisper by the death pond. Complicity: The water line must have risen dramatically, she quips. Within the aesetic ideal there is a longing, Nietzsche tells us, a longing to be rid of longing itself. What this means is a will to nothingness (and this span class is titled 'disappear') (Nietszche, Geneology of Morals New York: Vintage Books, 1989. 3. 28. 163). And to counter and complicate the accusations that Nietzsche was an anti-semite ¬ read 158-159.). A will toward annihilation is marked and remarked. Both Arendt and Kofman, differently, propose a will to life. What does this look like? How does this will appear? In other words, a longing (with emotional weight/wait) without I-deals. Belonging becoming.
