Rebecca Warren’s sculpture practice consists of a fairly simple logic: do everything you’re not supposed to do with sculpture – treat it like a painting, don’t glaze it, stick your finger into clay like play-doh – in order to make the most emotive effects possible.
In “Autonomy of Affect,” Brian Massumi has distinguished between emotion and affect as a qualitative difference where emotion consists of “socially recognized lines of action and reaction” while affect is a type of as-yet-uncategorized intensity, a pre-emotional state.
