A self-withdrawn, hidden presence: silent inactivity, affective and extractive capitalism, surveillance and commodification of behaviour, non-participation, withdrawn complicity, non-subjectivity and refusing a gaze, paralysis in
time of crisis – what non-doing undoes.

Witness Back at Me is personal dissection that draws on the author’s childhood episodes of disembodiment, when, through the death of his mother from cancer at age two, he lost his ability to speak for nearly two years, which is also the time when he was placed in a foster home at a dairy farm outside Calgary, from age two to four. During this time, the author recalls not inhabiting his own body, but often floating outside it and witnessing himself as “other.”
