    This chapter will work with deleuzeguattarian theories, posthuman and new materialisms to examine how subjectivity becomes an entangled open-ended set of relations in ‘process ontology’ (Braidotti, 2006: 199). Gathering empirical materials from texts, images and early childhood education, we will attempt to sense their complex ebb and flow that resists an always-already for-ness of the research process that modulates our experiencing of the young child in the posthuman early years. As researchers, we will try to rethink data as words but also as images, movements, politics, molecules, affect, noise, haecceity and pollution, documenting our thoughts, preoccupations, transgressions, detours and distractions in the hope of rethinking our research as movements, openings, new improvisations.
