Davina Kirkpatrick hosted Louise Mackenzie and Susanna Hood in discussion.

Weaving together practices of listening, imagining, breathing and yawning, Louise and Susanna have been thinking about the body as a space of more-than-human expression. 

In this session, they invited members of ARE to trial an imaginative and meditative practice that they are developing together that starts with the larynx and expands outwards. 

Louise Mackenzie, PhD, is an Edinburgh-born interdisciplinary artist, curator and writer. Her practice explores human relationships with the non-human world. With an interest in experimental and experiential practices, sound and new/found media play an important role in her work. She is co-founder and curator of interdisciplinary cinema project, Black Box and co-founder of Alive Together, an interdisciplinary community for research in human/animal relationships. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including ZKM (Germany), BALTIC CCA (UK) and National Library of Madrid (Spain) and she has written for publications with MIT Press, Routledge, Bloomsbury and Intellect.
