    What do doors do? Open Close Invite In Shut Out Jam Stick Wedge open Welcome: Entice and Invite Offer a glimpse into Bar SLAM SHUT Get kicked in Get kicked shut Splinter Warp Hang Sit ajar Gently linger in our minds Cause hurt and separation Affecting thoughts Moments of joy or pain Longing, Waiting Fearful longing, Fearful waiting, Anticipating Wondering Haunting ?Come-on-in" This article is based on research-creation experimentations arising from the provocations ?what do doors do?? and ?how do doors matter??. We ponder how knowledge-making practices come to life when you take a little time to notice the mattering of doors. We use collaborative feminist praxis to generate arts-based post-qualitative entanglements as generative invitations for door storying that illuminate the potentialities of commoning practices.
