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 created a 15 minute video loop. The project website can be found here: http://studiesfor.org/ And the video here http://studiesfor.org/video/
