If the nature of the gaze has multiple, shifting possibilities, what perspectives are possible and how might it feel to encounter each? Can a text successfully invoke some element of the very emotions it describes, rendering reading as an active and participatory experience?

Into something that talks with several voices and has ideas that loop back and forth; a collaging of perspectives colliding, interrupting, disrupting, only to come back into clear focus once again.
