ELSE JOURNAL 1: On Contemplation


Contemplation is conscious gazing; it represents the in-between space where dualities like inside/outside, mind/body are dissolved to reveal the content of the form and the experience within it. Contemplation is the way by which futures, presents, and pasts are created and maintained in a particular form of time, and related to the alteration of perception through some or no intervention. A whole world of conceptual possibilities, including the postcolonial, are opened through the act of contemplating: Diasporas, recognitions in the self and some other as a surface for reflection, the subversive evidentiation of hidden meanings and unsolved narratives.
