On “we”
‎…as space is never homogeneous, people occupying it end up in hierarchical “we”s – this isn’t a manifestation of a mass-mob mentality, but quite the opposite, a sign of difference. Difference between individuals, but also, again, differentiation of groups – such as the “we” of a panel as opposed to the “we” of the audience (and when you walk in an auditorium, you make a decision to opt into one of those groups, and assume the consequences).
“We” is. The only way to dislocate it is to knowingly mess with it (for instance by sitting in the back of the room even if part of a panel).
