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.

Generative Somatics

It was my pleasure to catch up with Mary McIntyre this week, to help me take apart some of my black and white thinking around my arts practice in the wake of all the new concepts and ideas I've been trying to integrate during this residency. In this super therapeutic episode, we discuss how to navigate complexity and complicity and how to be in relationship with systems that may not serve you, all through a somatic lens.

This episode is a bit longer, however it includes two meditations! I encourage you to sit down and close your eyes whilst listening to them (if it's possible).

Here's a short video of the hand action for the second meditation for regulating your nervous system which Mary guided me through.
