a future where our collective grief is acknowledged. where we unpack together, and nurture the grief into a healthier collective reclamation.
I’m interested in how a person finds something out. As in: How do I find out about ____? How does knowing one thing lead to the another thing if I don’t know what the other thing is yet? How do I really get to new information? what are the apparatus that humans have always used? or more recently have created? what role do memory, association and language serve to connect what I know what what I don’t know? at what points do I learn something new? does breaking everything down and starting over always the way to new form?
Language is always a response to the evolving world around us -- we expand it when our current vocabulary fails to capture what we're observing, or have a particular desire for how we'd like the future to unfold. Naming is a political act as much as a poetic one
