The body is defined by its pinning on a grid. The grid is conceived as an appositional framework of culturally constructed significations; gender, race, and sexuality – all is already coded into the ideological master structure.
The grid incites imaginaries of time as active and space as passive, which evokes past, present, and future, offering coordinates for locating identities.
