This work engages a kind of dialectical movement, an edging of contact that makes the original more malleable. The familiar, the singular, local events and vernacular languages are my raw materials. I systematically collect and entangle trace elements from cultural, historical, geographical and personal experience. I invite inconsistencies and peculiarities within these new narratives as a challenge to remain open and engaged. Slippery and hard to grasp, this dysfunctional movement, which I’ve framed in this thesis, decenters singular messages and allows new forms of reasoning to emerge.
