Diatom I is a reading group. Too busy eating and copulating when it's in the sunlight, Diatom I happens in the extended duration of its hibernation: very quiet, very slow. It reads with its eyes closed, uses hairy starlike feelers that get rushed and withered by the kick-back currents of passing cattle. Reading - thinking, theorising, making, knowing, encountering, speculating - with rather than for or about objects.
