In response to this global pandemic, I created a few ephemeral works on one dry erase board. Intending to find healing and catharsis on multiple levels as inspired by traditional Diné sand painting rituals, I practiced my own breath work, grounding, and rhythmic mark-making practice within a communal virtual program and artist-scholar collective.
Studio M* is an arts-based research lab through which I facilitate and support international, virtual, communal sessions of "Spontaneous Creation Making," with individuals of all backgrounds. The point of these sessions is to connect, create, and process these uncertain times together. My intention for these dry-erase board works is: to connect with others despite the time of isolation; go with the flow of mark making and trust the process; and explore what creative spontaneity can afford the immune system.
