You know the feeling : you’re online, right, and for no particular reason, you start to feel weird. Like something glorious is about to happen. And then, just like that, it fades, the glory has passed; now you feel sad. Did you miss it?
Oh, what a time to be alive. I love this life. I sometimes wonder whether it loves me back, but I try and convince myself that such things don’t matter. Nothing does, and that’s the best part.
Well, anyway, this is an exploration of some of the feelings that could crush us in the digital 21st century.
rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
Our bookshop is open on Wednesday and Thursday from 11h to 17h, and from Friday to Sunday from 11h to 19h.
If you are interested to stock with us, get in touch, we are open for conversation and new friendships.
