The Inflammatory Choir is a growing collection of dilated fluids delivered by burning lips.
“We as women need to reclaim the positive value of the fluid, not as the opposite of the solid/masculine but as something that can fill the spaces between the binary terms and join them into what Cixous has termed ‘a moving, limitlessly changing ensemble’, or what Deleuze and Guattari describe as an ‘assemblage.’”

Ariadne is the Goddess of the Labyrinth, Vegetation, Mazes, Paths, Fertility, Wine, Labyrinths,Snakes, and Passion.
Ariadne’s thread, named for the legend of Ariadne, is the solving of a problem with multiple apparent means of proceeding - such as a physical maze, a logic puzzle, or an ethical dilemma - through an exhaustive application of logic to all available routes. It is the particular method used that is able to follow completely through to trace steps or take point by point a series of found truths in a contingent, ordered search that reaches an end position. This process can take the form of a mental record, a physical marking, or even a philosophical debate; it is the process itself that assumes the name.
This online archive gathers the material encountered while researching the figure of Ariadne, known in Greek myths as the sister of the Minotaur, guard of Daedalus’s maze, and helper/lover of Theseus.
All the material linked here is to be found in the printed issues as well.
