My research practice relies on participatory action research (PAR) and Research through Design (RtD), methods that centre experience and social history, and emphasize collective inquiry, experimentation, knowledge-creation, and social change.

7. Covidcene Journals.

(aka correspondence/correspondance) is a research-creation project that addresses the social distancing measures and the changes to daily life resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic through the creation of a series of typewritten journal entries typed on March 2020. The Covidcene brings an opportunity to rethink the intersections of (socially engaged) art and public pedagogy. What are the considerations and implications of art-making and art-thinking during a global pandemic?
