Over the past decade Krista Caballero and I have collaborated on arts based research and experimental knowledge practices, including collective workshops, place-responsive installations, and scholarly publications. Through these varied actions we have developed a collaborative, unfixed lexicon depicting our struggles as artists to bring attention to the overlooked and unrecognized through focusing on interdependence, justice, agency and everyday ecologies.

From our work together we have created several works and collaborations with other artists. The project website can be found here: And the video here
