If language is performative and can be an event that unfolds here and now, then what about an interview in which you answer questions that are important to you? This interview is a recording, an artefact. It is recorded very precisely and does not involve interference if one is looking for "authenticity". But it is also true that thought is as flexible as are the physical processes in the body. The thought is also an emotion, meaning that thought and speech are deeply connected with much more than a straight line of cause and effect. These confusing relationship trajectories are something I focused on while working on this video.
