Summary I am experimenting with ‘exemplification’ (Massumi, 2002) and ‘deconstrucitve writing’ (Maclure, 2010) by applying them to selected data from research for my doctoral thesis. Central to both is the power of examples to expose detail and divergence that lead to new and different possibilities and connections. I have been inspired by Derrida’s (Maclure, 2003; Spitzer, 2011) notion of the fabric of a text with ‘tears’, ‘cuts’, ‘knots or aporias’. Therefore, I have created a fabric of text with tears and aporias: one that encourages readers to think and read doubly (Derrida, cited in Spitzer, 2011). I write in an ‘inattentive’ way (Massumi, 2002): juxtaposing examples (narratives) with the identities of the narrators, my responses to their narratives, and theoretical and other musings to play with the ambiguity of reality and identity. The interplay of inattention, exemplification, and deconstructive writing allows for interpretation, reinterpretation, affective responses, and new and different impressions and possibilities. My aim in writing this paper is threefold: (1) to explore the application of a Derridean perspective to some of my research, (2) to practise exemplification and deconstructive writing, and (3) to write in an inattentive and creative way.
