Melancholia [is] a defence against … being … open to every attack of an unloving & hostile world.
- darian leader
the final moment of analysis is defined as “going through a fantasy”, [to] experience … that there is nothing “behind” the fantasy
… the fantasy is precisely a construction … to hide this void, this “nothing,” i. e., the lack in the Other.

“In the summer of 2012 I drove across the United States of America and aimed to photograph this country from an indigenous, queer perspective. It is part of a Work in Progress titled TRANSPLANT///.
At one point I pulled over on the side of a stretch road in South Dakota to observe a thunderstorm. After taking a few photographs, I continued to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation—the ancestral lands of the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota. I checked into a room at the tribal casino and in the morning when I awoke I spoke with a local Native woman at the front desk. We shared a brief and sweet interaction that involved much laughter. As we parted ways I reached into my bag and handed her a book of poetry by Joy Harjo. It was from her milestone published work, She Had Some Horses.
I had just finished driving over 7,500 miles and Joy accompanied me along the way. I picked up a copy of Crazy Brave at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. and savored each page from Portland, ME to Providence, RI to New York City, and finished it en route to Detroit, MI. I keep two copies of She Had Some Horses at all times. One is my personal copy, and the other is meant to be given away at another chance encounter. “
