    Book synopsis: Electric Brine is a volume of poetry and critical essays by female voices from diverse fields such as literature, geography, media studies, history of life sciences, sociology, and poetics of science and fiction, central to the curatorial research entity The World in Which We Occur (TWWWO) and its associated online study group Matter in Flux (2014-ongoing). Conceived as an anthology and a register, it serves as both a testimony to the initiative’s long standing work of creative adaptation and ecological inquiry, and a quest to situate a vision of material politics through the lens of six punctuated pieces on flow and fluids. The literary and scientific “fabulations” layed out in the pages that follow, speak of the conjunction of lived embodiment, the embodied quality of language, and the ability to trigger political imagination through writing and witnessing. Each of these strands polyperform under TWWWO: they can be traced retroactively to the themes present in the live event series, Matter in Flux’s private study sessions, and the initiative’s collective writing work presented in public venues and publications. In the rear of this volume, a index exists documenting the years of study and invitation.
