Curated by Darryn Doull 


Like a wind, like a storm, like a fire, like an earthquake, like a mud slide, like a deluge, like a tree falling, a torrent roaring, an ice floe breaking, like a tidal wave, like a shipwreck, like an explosion, like a lit blown off, like a consuming fire, like spreading blight, like a sky darkening, a bridge collapsing, a hole opening. Like a volcano erupting.
  -  Susan Sontag, The Volcano Lover, 1992


FASTWÜRMS pyroclastic #VOLCANO_LOV3R is a primordial geo-queer liberation narrative.

#VOLCANO_LOV3R is the super-heated witchcraft of ‘many and more’, the vulcanology and libidinal economy of abundance, reciprocity and generosity.

Like the love of Lord Hamilton and Vesuvius, #VOLCANO_LOV3R is a cauldron of boundless unexpected abundance brimming with obsidian sexual potential.

Volcanos are world builders. Poly-sexual, generative and procreative, they build islands and atolls, mountains and continents, landscapes of soil rich in life-giving nutrients and minerals.

Volcanos are dragons and destroyers of worlds. Harbingers of cataclysm, poisonous gas, smothering ash: the death of cities and civilizations.

#VOLCANO_LOV3R is an aesthetic cauldron of maximalist profusion: “Nothing succeeds like excess.” (Oscar Wilde)

Queer vulcanology: the magma chamber as a maximalist mxnkind cave, feeding a fiery caldera brimming with pyroclastic affect.

#VOLCANO_LOV3R conflates sexual energy and diversity with the world building profusion and procreative power of the volcano.

#VOLCANO_LOV3R is a hot pocket fumarole queen, the ace of wands and the queen of cups. the sun, the star, the lovers and the tower.

#VOLCANO_LOV3R sleeps with the seismic data of sustainable love.

#VOLCANO_LOV3R is certified by Witch Nation and approved by the gay magma chamber of commerce.
