Through the performative, we shift our attention from what a thing looks like to what a thing does, and from objects and artefacts to ‘movements’ as well as to the effects of our practices and actions in life. This transformational ‘mode’ echoes the notion of worlding – with its accompanying history of ‘indefinition’ and indetermination as well as its clear co-responsive engagement in the making of the world – and locates us in the realm of ‘situatedness’, or inside phenomena. We are within, and active parts of, specific situations that we encounter in relationship to a series of concerns, things that really matter and that have to do with the ongoing becoming of the world. Becoming inside these situations requires a certain fidelity, a certain willingness to stay and to endure; a caring in duration. In this duration it is both possible and necessary to develop situated knowledges, which emerge as ‘ways-of-doing-and-making’ from our engagement in worlding practices, practices which are also, for that reason, learning experiences.
