Placed beside each other, these citations from Thrift’s recent Non-Representational Theory: Space, Politics, Affect, serve to indicate the topic, or more accurately the dilemma, of this chapter. When I first began to write this piece, it was going to be about writing, and the place of writing within non-representational geographies, with especial reference to notions of ‘creativity’ and experimentation. In one way, all I ever wanted was to be taken seriously as a writer … and so I thought perhaps to open with the declarative thought that geographers should engage freely with the techniques and presentational formats of the creative arts. Personally, I’d like to write descriptive prose, travel narrative, fiction, poetry even. I’d like to paint pictures, take photographs, maybe make videos, produce site-specific pieces – and so on.
