Journal of Embodied Research

  • Touching Outward: Art-making at the seam where care meets risk presents two artistic maps, iterations of a single project that explores methods for engaging diverse publics to imagine, feel, consider and care about marine-related issues of risk which impact oceans and coastlines.
  • This video article engages with the potentiality for research in marine sustainability to develop through creative practices that bring diverse communities into conversation.

  • This research asks: “How might we engage artistic processes to better understand actual and perceived risks to marine sustainability and facilitate community engagement, beyond the circulation of scientific publication?"

  • This transdisciplinary project was developed by four artist-researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds – a geographer, a performance maker, a visual artist, and a film maker

  • The researchers shift between philosophy, social science, pedagogy, ecology, performance, poetry, installation and film.
