Chapter 10 examines the sun as a space of liminality within the extractive architectures of carceral conditions. The prison mine, as a liminal spatiality of lithic earth, cut across undergrounds, both racial and geologic. The subject position of the liminal occupies a different spatial zone of experience and culture that is both within and alienated from the categories of racial capitalism. Thus it is a geophysical zone that is a rift in the spatiality of white settler colonialism. Thinking with David Marriott’s liminality, the chapter circumscribes an alternative cosmic materiality. The radical placement outside the sun and surface, and the consequence of that dereliction, require an understanding of the imposition of extreme violence, alongside a recognition of how other modes of sensing and theorizing were practiced outside of and in contradiction to the normative modalities of materiality as an environmental-emancipation ethic.
