Following Bergson, Relationscapes places the emphasis on the immanence of movement moving: how movement can be felt before it actualizes. Preacceleration refers to the virtual force of movement’s taking form. It is the feeling of movement’s in-gathering, a welling that propels the directionality of how movement moves. In dance, this is felt as the virtual momentum of a movement’s taking form before we actually move. (Erin Manning, Relationscapes, Cambridge: MIT Press, 2009, 6)

[house] — one giant node all in the center of the crumpled lines, however also all the crumpled lines inside that one node as well. It is not an important place, but important only because it is the main spot of the persons awakening. When you awake, no matter how fast you leave the apartment, there is the very moment that fills your memory with the expectations of the day, blended with past events.

Memory is a constant transforming mechanism overlapping stimulations over time. Past events happened form neuron patterns specific for that event, however not that unique as it gets affected with the current stimulations of the constant present. {Constant present in my opinion is as explained by Derrida in ‘What comes before the question?’ …A different type of temporality that’s even older than the past, or a to-come beyond the future. The past and the future are like another present; a past-present and a future-present. I want to try to think of a past or a coming to be that is not just a modified present, not future presents of past presents, but a different experience with regard to the past or the future…} So we come to the conclusion that the events get effected with present stimulations, either good or bad way, which we can classify as depressing or non depressing very simply in ones perspective. We talked about waking up in the morning in a room, and the very first moment we see the ceiling or the walls and so on, of which has the ability to store information from the past events. That helps one to re-call a past event. From that perspective the crumpled lines are changing its scale and gets even more crumpled inside that tiny little room and creates a whole set of information system.

House is one very important place, that fills ones past. But also one can choose not to fill that with many other memories and stuff, or lets say less memories. This may not mean it is not going to re-call past events, but than it triggers one’s inner feelings, and starts to fill the space with the maybe outer stimulations. There it becomes a very personal space, because all the rest of the information will be filtered from a personal point of view. The more the house is shared, the more social it becomes, and also helping memory to be more social as well.

Once it is a difficult concept in relation to all of its clunkiness. But also a very delicate and fragile concept that it becomes the most crucial spot to form one’s memory. Very important to control the house to control the memory and to control the psychology of itself.
