Neeraja D: Ellipsis
The vowel is a performative utterance, whether stamped into paper, traced onto walls, or slid in between consonants to form a word. Each repeated mark leaves a residue, building up over time; thus, Neeraja D's (M.F.A '15) work both draws on and generates a heteroglossic configuration. Does repetition discipline or undo the form? Does repetition discipline or undo linguistic identity? Perhaps language and the self simply scatter to the ground under the weight of it all.
