to be marginalized is to dive into the crux of things. we are no longer concerned with the big picture, but rather with the specificity of the heart. to exist in this way is to examine the language imbued within and without. there is also fixation within marginalization: the creation and exhibition of alternate, othered, and reclaimed selves. at the crux of fixation there is fluidity: simultaneous performances and becomings of identity, affinity and relation. the condition of my existence is one of fluidity and greyness.
