Mapping Spectral Spaces.
Mapping Spectral Traces, 1.
How have residual marks been created, left, and remembered? How might
we conceptualize these afterlives and effects of experiences, perceptions,
processes, and events? Traces acquire meaning through acts of discovery,
juxtaposition, re-presentation, and relocation.2 If traces are present yet not
always visible, define the “thing” through a web of relations between the
listener and teller yet are not animated until they come alive in particular
settings, are always already known but not recognizable until they are
brought out again in yet new but familiar forms, then the concept of
spectral traces may provide us with a language of belonging, even as such
traces speak of past loss.
