This past summer I was an artist in residence with the Ayatana Biophilia Artists’ Research Residency program. For a week I stayed in Chelsea, QC with 5 other artists from the US, Iceland and Australia studying nocturnal species and exchanging ideas about our art practices in relationship to the natural world. We slept in a cave with bats, stayed up calling to Barred Owls, swam in the river, and generally made some weird and fun stuff inspired by what happens after dark.
