Anti-violence is different than non-violence. I use the term ‘anti-violence’ because I don’t think that ‘non-violence’ exists. I think that a purist politics of non-violence tends to look at certain forms of violence and not others. I don’t use the term ‘non-violence’ because I think we are all complicit in a violent system. Anti-violence is non-negotiable because our goal is to create a society that is not based on violence. But that doesn’t presume to say which particular strategies people should adopt at a particular time.

Ambiguity is the opposite of clarity—so, in my mind, it shares a necessary relationship to clarity, if that makes sense. We know it as an important tool in poetry—like double meanings, which are highly valued in Japanese poetics. Also, leaving things partial can either be or be akin to synecdoche. I’ve read that Japanese refer to such suggestion as fragrance, kaoru. You don’t need to say everything, because the fragrance will continue, and you can keep experiencing what the fragment suggests even after the piece formally closes. Just because something is partial doesn’t mean that the whole is not, somehow, present. It just means that something is not going to be fully extended or even fully realized as an image. In putting together Mosquito and Ant, I wondered how much could be left out before losing, completely, the sense of a piece.

There must be ghosts all over the world. They must be as countless as the grains of the sands, it seems to me. And we are so miserably afraid of the light, all of us.

I’m always ‘winsome’ or ‘ethereal’ or ‘mystical’ or ‘innocent’. Things that I don’t identify myself with at all. People always use coded language about women in music. But there’s much more strength and fire in those songs than vulnerability.

There’s a good feminist analysis of media representations of Newsom here, if anyone’s interested.
