Lingering | material conditions of distance to object of study.

Damian Castro describes a fleeting condition among Labrador Inuit when, during the hunt, a deer in pursuit by the hunter stops in its tracks and gazes back to meet the eyes of the Inuit.

In this moment, the hunter sees the gaze of the hunted. Damian describes the moment as fleeting, characterized by lingering and wonderment. The phrase in Inuit includes allusion to catching the eye of the betrothed.

As suggested in these images, lingering entails physical distance. The space that separates the bench from the painting on the wall creates a condition of wonderment. Lingering requires physical distance between the subject and the object of wonder. Stable viewing too close partially obscures the portrait.
