negotiating: sticky sites of affection & infection, influence & inheritance, obligation & commitment, encounter & entanglement, dreaming & waking, inside & outside, you & me, us & we

riding: the breath of that common wind

thinking: about recent or upcoming projects & sustained conversations with artists: Amanda Boulos, Helen Cho, Derek Coulombe, Patrick Cruz, Liza Eurich, Brendan Flanagan, FASTWÜRMS, Stefana Fratila, Maggie Groat, Jessica Groome, KikoSounds, Faith La Rocque, Katie Lyle, Colin Miner, Tegan Moore, Sarah Nasby, Claudia Rick, Erica Stocking, Ella Tetrault, Dustin Wilson; curators/writers: John Goodwin, Jacqueline Mabey, Lillian O’Brien Davis, Daniella Sanader

working: on Moire--a digital artist-run publisher--at our own, unhurried pace

teaching: as artistic practice to radically reimagine relation and communication via play, thought-experiments, (witch)craft, dreams, sustained mentorship, study/writing-groups, and collaborations that generate collectivist modes of participation

living: in the area known as Toronto/T’karonto on land cared for by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and The Wendat. By acknowledging Indigenous Relations, I recognize the violence that makes my presence on these lands possible, while feeling thankful for the refuge my Slavic ancestors found here. Within these words, I pronounce my personal responsibility to confront the enduring impacts of colonialism and that a statement like this is never enough

reflecting: upon how I was raised an hour from the city recently-named Vancouver on the unceded territories of Coast Salish Peoples-specifically the Kwantlen|qʼʷa:n̓ƛʼən̓, Katzie|q̓ic̓əy̓, Semiahmoo|SEMYOME, and Tsawwassen|sc̓əwaθən məsteyəxʷ Nations

rangling: miwwi & mooni
