This research project seeks to interrogate and reframe the thinking of horror through a rigorous engagement with its formal limits.

The motif of the incision, traced through a series of cinematic, literary and ludic permutations, constructs an unsettling of prior aesthetic boundaries.

In reading texts via this visceral act, the project aims to ask not what horror is, or why, but rather what form horror could take.

This query asks that we draw from a formal reading of texts an affective horror-to-come, and a thinking of horror beyond the frightening that takes seriously the prospect of a dismembered world.
