developed during my three-month residency at NARS International Residency Program
"Questions For a Dinosaur" is the first video in an ongoing investigation in which I seek to articulate a language through which we can talk about our feelings around climate change. We can talk about the material costs, but it seems to be more difficult to talk productively about, or process, the interior experience of an unseasonably warm day. And so I’m asking questions: What does it feel to witness our climate change around us? What are we afraid of? How can we begin to build psychological resilience as the weather gets stranger and scarier?
