Inhabiting the Grey
Inhabiting the Grey imbricates the presence of the unseen/unacknowledged/unrepresented, Modernism’s non-ideal subject, in space and time. The White Man’s Gaze frames the daily rituals of work, rest, and leisure into a conventional time frame revolving around the 9-5 work schedule. This datum in time programs spaces to function at specific moments excluding anyone outside of this time frame. There are moments of overlap in space and time between the presence of the marked and unmarked bodies, a gray space, an in-between, a buffer. Imbricating the presence of the marked bodies in this gray space recognizes, without displaying, the marginalized, creating a space to practice liberty, a space of liberation.
