I stumbled across this word while trying to delete an unwanted menu; it was apparently the Dictionary.com word of the day yesterday. I’ve not saved it for #WordyMonday because I already have a suggestion for that from a friend, but it’s a new word for me so I decided to post images representing it anyway.
Decathect means “to withdraw one’s feelings from something in anticipation of a future loss” and it comprises the Latin prefix de- which implies an undoing or removal and the Greek term kathek meaning “to keep, hold on to.”
Dark Matter is a choreography featuring movement which leaves it mark on everything it touches. Playing with the sound of space itself and showing (among other things) a failure to communicate, I thought that images from it would represent decathect well. Look out for Avant Garde Dance’s Black Album and go if you can. Tony Adigun’s work is thought provoking, this one particularly so.
