Glories is a recollection of and fantastic riff on voyeurism, “marginal” histories and sexual practices, and intimacies in public spaces, not uncommon in the experiences of queer men. In our pursuits for desirable objects, we are often restricted in our perspectives, and limited to imperfect views and fleeting glimpses. Like observing under malfunctioning lighting through flawed panes of frosted glass, we fill in the details between flickers, construct peripheral activities, and attempt to consolidate unstable forms.
