Every moment, gesture, and reflection intimates…We…We think…We think we…We think we exist…. But what is the insidious strong force that provides us with intermittent and porous glimpses of our day-to-day existence; and if such a force exists, how is it encountered? Is it quantifiable and material ? Maurice Blanchot, Georges Perc, Michel Certeau, Raymond Queneau, et al., have made their vie a project, an experience (literally translated from the French, experiment); that is, life is a living being, something to be encountered and endured in a panoply of ways; encountered, the quotidien confirms and alienates, flirts with determinacy and indeterminacy—the quantum mechanics of the human experience.
It is not my intent to prescribe a metaphysic/aesthetic for living or offer rhetorical proofs to argue the case for a universal truth. (What case—because the everyday and all that it entails can not be reduced to its contents?) ‘Le quotidien: ce qu’i l ya de plus dificil a decouvrir. By use of discursive expressions (e.g., biography, travel elegies, fragments, gnomes), sometimes ambiguous because the quotidien always echappe us, I will probe into the enigma that is the quotidien. Indeterminacy, compressed time, and non-s-p-a-c-e function as points of departure in my exploration and observation of human gestures (e.g., conflict, resolve, uncertainty, and desire ). Gleaned from such an unorthodox approach is a radical hermeneutic, one that allows for wide-ranging epistemic observations about the human condition.
