Means are matters of practice, things to do things with. A mean is a mean to fulfill a certain task. They are a category of things that carry potential: instruments, tools, stages, spaces, infrastructures, resources, strategies, ideas. Means are volatile and ambiguous things, that have some other than the current state of things inscribed into them. Means point elsewhere. Ideal means refer to a best case scenario while keeping in the dark the place they are pointing at. Or they might hint at their own immateriality, the ideal of the idea, the unfortunate core of most best case scenarios.
