Submission to the course Individual Project Work 1, 2022 focusing on socially engaged arts practice and questions of place and communities based on the principle of more-than-human realms and art, at HDK/Valand August 2022

OUR STORIES . READ. LISTEN. WALK.
The short visual essay of 5 minutes that I submit is an abbreviated and harshly compromised version of a longer presentation of this work. The full presentation of the work is attached further down the page as optional material to watch. It’s approximately 11 minutes long.
