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.
