"In my search for a language that might help me articulate questions around my experience, I read the works of cultural thinkers Ien Ang, who examines the 'space of the in-between' and cites the state of "living in transition" that is not straightforward and complete but in a constant 'transitionality'; and Irit Rogoff, who engages with the question "how and where...meanings [are] determined."
