About this exposition

Performing Diffraction: Reading Michael Baldwin’s Erasure through Karen Barad’s Agential Realism Erasure sounds through the superimposition of waves of activity, ostensibly quasi-independent though in constant interference with each other. Erasure begins to sound in the moment of intersection of these disparate but inseparable strands of physical material, interwoven into the constantly transforming aural material of the piece. This web of interference, referenced in the title as erasure, can also be constructively conceived through a variety of other theoretical tools. Donna Haraway’s conception of diffraction, in particular, assists a productive reading of Baldwin’s work, and Karen Barad’s own diffractive reading of Haraway alongside her agential realist ethico-onto-epistemology provide profound and useful avenues for a performative analysis of Erasure and its materialization as a sounding phenomenon.
