In this ongoing project I consider the properties of aerosols and argue they constitute a form of material assembly and socio-spatial practice with political efficacy.


I combine a study of atmospheric aerosols with Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe’s early theorization of antagonism to propose an environmental relation between bodies, materials, and space that dissolves a normative hierarchy of difference. I conclude by suggesting aerosolic antagonisms are a transformational condition engendering a new spatial practice coinciding with the necessity (and opportunity) for new sensuous and aesthetic possibilities.
