A container, a vessel, that doesn’t contain or hold, but remembers. A pool, a body, skirting the edges, becoming the perimeter and moving between them in osmotic flow. Ruminating on spiders and their webs as extensions of their bodies and their cognition, feeling the external tensions and responding, embodied adjusting and readjusting, holding memory and knowledge and extending that outwards. In the transitional moments between caterpillar and moth/butterfly; bodies dissolving seemingly dismantled into a gloop of the self, memories held, contained within the concoction and into a new state of being. Fountains in continual renewal and processing of itself, turning itself inside out and lapping it back up again.
