About

To transect is to cut across transversely. The term ‘transection’ is employed ecologically and medically to describe processes of intersection into the environment or body, wherein a crossways divide is employed to reveal parts of land or body-tissue in relation, these becoming objects of study across transecting cuts that reveal interconnections. Transections are also diagrams, lines (of thought) and, arguably, flights of fancy drawn across surfaces. As analytical devices, they refer to knowledge practices and ways of being that cut across domains of knowledge and experience to transversely reconfigure analytical forms, subjects, objects and relations. This research hub aims to critically reimagine the potential of transecting analytics – and the images, objects and worlds that they elicit – to become an effective locus of critique.
