Poetics of Home:
ghosts, traces, longing & belonging


Home – whether it refers to loss of home, home as safety, home as danger – has a bearing on our mental states, often in enduring ways. I am developing a soundscape and lyric essay project focusing on the connection between urban landscapes and interior landscapes. I attend to the physical spaces we inhabit – including the sensorial, relational, and historical dimensions – and consider how we map them onto the psyche and body. The project documents states of dislocation, un/belonging, nostalgia, liminality and yearning that arise with departures, arrivals, and the daily process of laying down footprints on the ground, memories in the mind and imprints in our cells. I am funded as an Emerging Artist by the Canada Council for the Arts.
