Sharing the process of reclaiming and rehabilitating my attention from an intense, long-term interface with systems that have perpetuated a cycle of extraction, distraction, hyperactivity and disconnection from the body. I consider my individual attention as the building block for paying consistent, expanded, collective attention to the larger, systemic issues at hand, both within myself and external to myself. Post-burnout, in Covid context, I’m beginning again.



Thankyou to Griffith University Art Museum for this commission!

It's episode five and I'm talking to Libby Harward. In this conversation, I feel like we're coming full circle! Libby has an inspiring wholistic way of conducting herself in the world which integrates broad systems and politics with the body and its chemical reactions. We discuss how cultural practice can heal and also start brainstorming some ways that artists and institutions can keep context around an art object. She's a badass who, during this episode, reminds me that artists have both agency and responsibility.


You can look at her work, including a recent suite of online works, on her website here.
