[ISEA2023] Artist Talk: Maria Michails — Sensing Place: building symbiotic relations

Artist Statement

Theme: Ecosystems – Climate Change Subtheme: Symbiotic Organizations

In this presentation I describe a new working methodology to learning about land and ecological disruption through ‘affective ecology’ and kinship encounters with human and other-than-human inhabitants as collaborators.

  • Maria Michails is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist. Her installations and social practice bridge the arts, the natural and social sciences, and technology, focusing on civic engagement with environmental issues. Her current research finds her in cold places seeking multi-species encounters.
