PINTHW is an ongoing, collaborative, multimedia and multi-platform non-philosophy project in collaboration with Bogna Konior. It is in an integrative project and a methodology that takes shape anew in each of its specific incarnations.
PINTHW began in May 2016 when we traveled to Lamma Island (Pok Liu Chau, or 南丫島) in the South China Sea and recorded the island sounds and a performative philosophical dialogue over four nights while walking in darkness.

Conceptually, we operate at the intersection of the Laruelle / Schmid non-standard method, de-colonial theory and the ontological turn, as well as feminist philosophy. We utilize texts (writing, reading) as well as performance and new media art to unveil an underdetermined wilderness of thought.
When we speak of 'the wild' we do not mean 'nature' or the natural environment. We take 'the wild' as the place of thought. Borrowing from Anne Francoise Schmid who speaks of 'philosophy in the field,' we move from the field to the wild as an unknown place, a philosophy yet to be known.
At the same time, pinthw aims to produce a radical aesthetic anarchy, exploring the inanthropomorphological human-in-darkness as a foreground of an art formed by the invention of its own method of ancestor politics.
