Abstract/Artist's Statement

In the interest of more closely examining the points of contact in intersubjective as well as textual encounters, I looked to the contact that I made with Alphonso Lingis, both in his texts as well as in our personal correspondence. I am working towards developing a more rigorous phenomenology that can understand difference positively, as being necessary and immediate to every encounter. I work through the figures of metaphor, immanence, autobiography, and the gift in Lingis' thought to try and construct a more sensuous, and a more dangerous, way of reading and of writing.
