Movement is a common feature of all posthuman systems. In contrast to
essences, forms and structures, which are defined by stasis, immutability,
fixity and anthropocentrism, kinetic systems are defined by their flux,
mobility and circulation. Kinetic systems are not just ‘open’ or ‘closed’ at
their limits but the whole system is in continual meta-stable motion. Every
aspect of the system is a continuously reproduced flow in a mixture of centripetal, centrifugal, tensional, elastic and pedetic motions. A kinetic system, like Deleuze and Guattari’s assemblage, is heterogeneous, nonessentialist, nonteleological, and is defined by collective agency.
