“BESIDE is an interesting proposition also because there is nothing dualistic about it; a number of elements may lie alongside one another, though not an infinity of them. […] Beside comprises a wide range of desiring, identifying, representing, repelling, paralleling, differentiating, rivalling, leaning, twisting, mimicking, withdrawing, attracting, warping, and other relations” (Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Touching Feeling: Affect, Pedagogy, Performativity).
