on air (working title) is a new creation, currently in early development
We began this creation pre-Covid 19. We were considering resilience, looking at witnessed and experienced inequities, and measures of generational time, as it related to our lives then. Worlds near and far, the personal, and the political arose as our thinking and moving evolved.
These questions are, now, even more present in our lives.
We are in a new time. Moving forward with on air, we are listening for unplanned simultaneities, human endurance, gentle adaptability, and the uniqueness of individual experience.
