when eric garcetti says that la will give $ to developers to build (some) low income housing along new rail lines so that those who wanted the lines in the first place can afford to live there and use them, my spidey senses go off. even if this “affordable housing” is indeed built, who can afford to move out of and then back into a neighborhood? 🤔 you also say that all of these lines - ostensibly for the people who live in the neighborhoods through which they run - will be done in time for the(/our THIRD) olympics? 🤨
I’d been thinking about a piece in which I just lie on the ground since I was at one of my lowest points last year. I would lie on my bathroom floor for hours at a time. I could technically move, but I couldn’t. More than just a reflection of my own depressed af embodiment, refusing to stand also extracts your body from an economic system that only values you for your labor. It makes you difficult to move. It is vulnerable, but it is strong and insistent, a sign of protest. It is horizontal without moving backward or forward, refusing linear temporality. It forces the body to become part of the history of the land on which it rests, to become part of the land without definitively claiming it. It rests. It is a Silueta. It is the undercommons. 📸 @elviskilledjfk @nancybakercahill @kt_bode 📹 @happypuddle
