"I would like to see more clearly, but it seems to me that no one sees more clearly." - Maurice Merleau-Ponty

Liminality is defined as the quality of uncertainty or obscurity; a psychological, neurological or metaphysical state a person is in, outside of or in between assumed social roles defined by law, tradition and convention. Liminality, which is by definition implicated by ambiguity and disorientation, is also described as periods of transition or as a threshold between measurable temporal spans or certain states of being. Residing in the space of the liminal, as much as it is temporary or limited, poses itself as a necessity in order to rebuild the notion of ‘self’ and create dispositions for building a fairer community. It is in the liminal period where fruitful grounds are created that enable new forms, institutions and traditions to be constituted. (...)
