Lived Experience, Practice, and the Academy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This paper explores my personal journey of where, when, and how I have “landed” to now. It is a sketch of my intellectual development and the impact of cross-cultural sources on my work, my thinking, and my visual practice. I follow a chronological way of looking at how I became informed about philosophy, art history, practice, and Indigenous ways of knowing for the sake of clarity. Although one’s life is not linear and operates in a more cyclic way, I reveal how I was influenced by the diverse lived experiences from childhood up until now.
