Berlin-based artist Dean Sameshima’s painted silkscreen appropriations of erotic connect-the-dots activities (which initially appeared in the pages of Drummer magazine) are the subject of the fifth chapter. Reading his interest in ‘numbers’ broadly—including Sameshima’s direct reference to John Rechy’s 1967 novel of the same name—the chapter discusses the work’s capacities to frustrate handy readings of archival objects. One work in particular, Bodily Fluids, 2007, is emblematic of these efforts, and it brings together various concerns across Sameshima’s oeuvre. Bodily Fluids not only entangles racialized subjectivities with historical sexual codes, but also intimates the ways in which we may be alone while also with others.
