With an invitation from The Luminary as a part of their annual International Exchange program and support from the Regional Arts Commission, I spent two weeks as an artist-in-residence at ZK/U (Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, Center for Art and Urbanistics) in Berlin this summer. The residency came at a crescendo of collaborative processes I am a part of in St. Louis. It was a moment to think critically about the implications of my work and to recommit to what I have been cultivating.
