Exceeding the Visual, Eluding the Textual
I hope this playful(l) playlet can exemplify the rigorous fun that practice-based research can encourage. My affinity with Eidsheim’s influential text is profound; I recognize in it multiple points of alliance with the aims of anthropology (at its best), and of critical cultural studies/postcolonial and decolonial theory. It has been my own lifelong quest to destabilize conventional categories, particularly the Master Subject, “the self” and essentialized “identity,” and the many variations on this theme: the human, the body, the subject/world binary, the theory/practice binary, and now—the voice and timbre.
