This Place Bottoms Me draws inspiration from Marge Piercy’s feminist science fiction Women on the Edge of Time (1976). In reference to the novel’s main character Consuelo traversing between present reality and the future, Opoku’s work delves into the hidden layers of the point cloud through a portal-like gutter. In this way, too, Opoku points to the contingencies of places and pasts that have yet to exist. Almost like a process of perpetual palimpsest, the layers of her works interact, overwrite and actualize each other without weighing knowledge from past experiences against the potentiality of future narratives.
