Residents / "We can still see the horizon (and it’s curved)”

    "We can still see the horizon (and it’s curved)”

    I was trained as an artist, disciplined in environmental studies and hatha yoga, and now delight in geography. Supporting someone with progressive memory loss means my life forms around accommodation to slippages in memory. Experiencing memory swirling around, unhinging from structure, all prompts deep questions about what is fair, what is just. The residency enables me to confront this day-to-day reality; to grapple with the contemporary tangle of identity politics, which, whether implied or otherwise, has questions of justice as fairness at its heart.

  • Will Holder

    "We can still see the horizon (and it’s curved)”

    Typographer Will Holder is the editor and publisher of F.R.DAVID, a journal concerned with reading and writing. He mediates and reproduces polyphonies of voices as design: bringing meaning and public access to things. His work has taken the form of oral and printed publications; and is informed by an ongoing study of song and music-making as a co-authored process, and production model for other disciplines. Holder sees conversation as means and model for production; and the role that memory plays between the printed page and the body as live, oral publication. As a self-driven study of graphic notation and collective reading processes, he has, with musician Alex Waterman initiated a series of publications, since 2012: Agapé (Miguel Abreu Gallery), Between Thought and Sound (The Kitchen, NY), The Tiger’s Mind (Sternberg), Yes, But Is It Edible?, The music of Robert Ashley for two or more voices (New Documents) and In Memoriam Mary Cecil… (Ociciwan and uh books).
