The zeitgeist cloud that informs and catalyzes this performance is large and diverse. I’ll continue to fill you in and offer “more reading” opportunities and options as the project progresses. For now, I offer a definition, mine, for the concept I coin as “zeitgeist cloud.”
If zeitgeist is the spirit of the times, a zeitgeist cloud speaks to one’s personal experience of the times.
A zeitgeist cloud acknowledges that subjective experience (unless one occupies only dominant, unmarked categories) is informed and shaped by spirits, plural, rather than a singular spirit of the times. A zeitgeist cloud takes a “one size fits [few] but inflects many” zeitgeist and personalizes it such that an implicated subjectivity can begin to emerge consciously.
