Set between an evocation and an ethnographic documentary, this essay explores aspects of aftermath of terror as an affective experience. Working through visuals and writing, I recall banal moments that disrupt the politics of forgetting by showing forms of remembrance through spaces, looks, or moments of simplicity. These moments signal leakages in official definitions of memory in otherwise classified spaces of nothingness, lethargy, and apathy. The article thus extends the evocative potential of photography and narrative writing as means to engage with multidimensional and hazy expressions of the experience of the aftermath of terror.
