To brace the contemporary: we exist as imaginary creations and see, as well as understand our exterior through lenses of invention. Whether this invention is ours or someone else’s, our world today is dependent on more than factual report, it is equally dependent on interpretation, ideation, an inner experience, as well as other forms of constructivism heavily dependent on imagining.

In a digital age where experiences of witnessing remain urgent, how can we produce a realm for nonknowledge to surface, despite the risks of imagination?

Trauma infused events lead us to a state of nonknowledge, where fragmented truths leave us within an imagined state. This imagined state, often feels futile within the framework of epistemology, witnessing and general intelligence—it becomes inadmissible within authoritarian spaces. I propose, nonetheless, that the potential pitfalls of imagination can draw attention to the necessary incorporeal gaps within the foundation of truths.
