a passionate geography

Between perception and a response emerges a zone of feeling, a resonance, Guiliana Brunoa vibration, a powerful affect that inaugurates the passionate geography evoked in Guiliana Bruno’s ‘atlas of emotion’ . . . art is not the expression of humanity, or of an underlying unity, but is rather the release of imagination from its human and functional home.  Impossible, we might say, and yet a necessary threshold, which a nonrepresentational and affective art seeks endlessly to cross.

–Iain Chambers, “Maritime Criticism and Theoretical Shipwrecks,”          PMLA, May 2010
