I'm using this thread because it's been empty for some while - and this could be seen to be a bit of a *performance* by me from the UK! All Interstitialists seem to be from USA. ;-)
I don't yet fully understand what 'Interstitial' is meant to mean or what it is meant to make happen. Proust's interstitial concept of discrete 'selves' (and Pessoa's heteronyms?) (together with, in a tiny way, my own recent tentative concept of Nemonymity) seems to be the essence of the meaning behind the label Interstitiality as I understand it to have been defined.
Interstitiality is indeed surely just another label or intra-label -- and labels generally are used to further careers within a name culture rather than furthering distinctive discrete art creations in themselves, and judged in and for themeselves without labels.
Just a performance, then, above, by me, hopefully to get people talking about Interstitiality again on these particular threads. Because I'm genuinely interested in it. And I'm still confused about it. (I love the word Interstitiality itself, but too much of a concertina phoneme-cluster to be meaningful in the mouths of babes and sucklings).
