The recent history of theoretical inquiry has been dominated by several shifts that have attended to nonhumans, objects, affects, and other relational perspectives. Likewise, creative media has economically and critically privileged immersive experiences that engage the body and the mind. These turns in thought and production demand a close attention to the specificities of embodied and collective sensation.

These narratives have the potential to influence the present, and they call a linear conception of time into question. Stories shatter into fragments, bound together diagrammatically or as a bricolage, queering historical narratives, regimes, and geographies.
