What goes on beyond an image? But before that how do we relate with the defused area between words and between things? How could we think something as a becoming-action in these terrains? Can we really play with language? Can we really dismantle it? How can we escape from the totalizing power that restrains it? Is it by rediscovering poetry that we liberate language? How to deal with the inseparable relations of inside and outside? Unconscious, consciousness and the external? Surface and deepness? How do we overcome separation? How do we activate the on-going flux of time and space?
