Abstract

I will be discussing systems different identities create and how paradigms of opposition to one another form through mainstream agendas of each identity. I will then talk about opposing forces and the result of their unity, navigating instances where contrasting dynamisms are dependent on one another in accomplishing a goal or completing a new unique force from their collision. Finally, I will speak of material metaphors and breaking points, dissecting a material’s limit to force of exterior aspects and of itself. Additionally, the queering of material through unraveling and transformation.
