This project seeks out un/official modes of denial in public spheres of discourse and engagement. Herein, denial makes possible to test out analytical capacities of everyday observations such as silencing, ignoring or refuting critical information, modes of knowing or truths to maintain, ways of being and modes of existence and convictions of the self in the world that are easier to sustain and comfortably situated in a presence that is worth being defended. I argue that denial is a mode of relating to the world, bringing forth meaning and modes of knowing about it.
