Thinking In Place, an installation by Clelia Knox BHA ’20, borrows its name from a similarly titled book by Carol Becker, which has, in the past year, provided me with some gentle guidance on what it means to bring the often heated, intimate fragments of my memories outside of my self. Sometimes this process of translation calls for giving structure or some kind of temporary legibility to these fragments by re-contextualizing them through a historical lens. In other moments, I need to atomize them further so that they can be free to reinvent themselves through the same kind of imaginative play that poetry often enjoys. Thinking In Place attempts to bring together the richness and clarity that both types of processes have given me as I continue to explore my identity as a Chinese adoptee, and live through the everyday joys, anticipations, anxieties and griefs that undeniably leave their trace on the questions about belonging and place that I seem to keep orbiting.
