Oozing, gushing, seeping. Water permeates and connects. Skin holds but does not contain.
Bodies are slippery: comprised of mostly water, suffused with other organisms and in constant flux. Yet, the gridded, impermeable, enclosed structures of Western urban landscapes and domestic spaces actively deny the leaky interdependence inherent to our being.
Through a practice of material investigation and bodily encounter, I ask: How can reminders of our sticky interconnectedness infiltrate our immediate material worlds? How can we find, amplify, and roll around in the moments where built structures and industrial materials do resemble a leaky, transient reality? How can we celebrate constant processes of shedding, absorbing, excreting and exchanging across (in)animate bodily vessels?
