Lyrics of “I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT”

How soft indeed the song of butterflies eating

I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT like a butterfly- is flying from Flower to Flower(x2)
I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT like a butterfly- is flying from Flower to Flower to Flower(x3)
I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT like a butterfly- is flying from Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower (x6)
I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT like a butterfly- is flying from Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower to Flower (x9)

As beautiful as the chance encounter of a PURPLE flying flower and a PURPLE butterfly in a PURPLE mirror

I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT like a PURPLE Flying Flowers
The Flying Flowers
Are Butterflies in the Flower
The Butterflies
Are Flying Flowers
Flower
Flower of consciousness

Appeared before my eyes a young man whose presence made flowers grow purple as he walked passed in the garden

“I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT”

(Performing Remembrance X Experience Memory)

“I just want you to FEEL the FEELING I FELT” is a performance about how people and things are engaged in the process of remembering and to consider the role of material culture and the mnemonic effects objects produce on people.

In the first instance people act on things, and in the second instance things act on people, in a cyclical manner. Instead action or practice is interstitial to people and things; each is held together in and through action. Things provide people with the capacity to act and through action things and people endure. Things make people exist, and people make thing exist. Objects show traces of past events or memories. People and objects are engaged in the process of remembering, it is simply that objects provide the ground for human to experience memory. The activity of remembering that is bodily felt and senses rather than see it as a sign or information. It not that objects has memory but memory is embodied in the material through alteration, manipulation or even destruction.  When we destroy or throw things away, show an act of deliberate forgetting.  But it is the absence of once present physical objects that ensure remembrance. I will like to stress that the mnemonic character of material culture is promoted by the involvement of objects. The acts of remembering are performance by material practices and it depends upon the performative capacities of materials. The performance of remembrance is a means to come to an understanding of ourselves and others, through the practice of remembrance through engagement with objects, people are produced and identities are formed.
