"Reference Mollusk". Space as material and emerging property

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: emerging space, materiality, experimentation, ontology.

This article provides a contribution to the debate on space towards a concept that echoes the image of Einstein’s Reference Mollusk. Considering Doreen Massey’s, Gilles Deleuze’, Bruno Latour’ and Carlo Rovelli’ works, the space is presented as multidirectional vector field, an aggregation of moving bodies, so it is no longer something different from matter, something that stands out from the things, a conteiner; rather an affirmative, productive matter. This configuration leads us to a concept of space not only as an emerging property, but also an absolutely material movement, knowable and therefore identifiable following a pragmatic of experimentation.
