Embedded In The Flesh Of The World series explores memory embodied; reactivating gestures, marks, punctuations recalling encounters with/in the world - being outside with the wind howling around me, debris/leaves swirling; running across different terrain, sometimes falling, slipping being sucked into the mud; hiding in the grass, swimming in oceans, lochs, rivers; touching, feeling, sensing, almost belonging. Using my sensuous physicallity to create with natural/manufactured, new/discarded found materials. I choose to leave the marks of my passage, my making just as those marks have been left on/within me through my encounters. I am embedded in these forms. #foldswhorlssurfacesspaces #sensuouspractice
(1st verse from my poem)
Embedded In The Flesh Of The World / Where the surface is shallow yet accessing depth / Through the spaces between the rhizome / Opening up the senses to the pleasure / How does it feel / To describe the moment between occasions / Seeking to tear down the constructs of temporality / These occasions themselves are as real as the singularities they connect.
