Reflections from a Blind Eye

Heather Höpfl


The author explores the valorization of reflection by arguing for a reassessment of the use of reflection. She also discusses the implications of the notion of the parergon for the nature of the frame, definition and liminality. The author draws on blindness and seeing, on blindness and reflection, and writes about the body, the flesh, the resistance that is in the touch, and in the recovery of the physical as counterpoints to the passivity of reflection.
