Black text reads 'Disability Resources for Artists and Organisations' on top of a swirly yellow background. There is a cute black smily face emoji made of punctuation in the middle of the image.

Turquoise text overlaid on image of novelty tortoise salt and pepper shaker holder. The text is a manifesto for a collaborative project called THE MEAL.

The phrase '100% Artistic Content' is layered over multiple images of the bottom of a red high heel. There is turquoise green fishing net in the background.

One image of a small white dish with a red puree inside it is used to create a tiled affect. Two text boxes are shown on top one which reads: PLEASURE: (eating sardella on toast that took 2 months to arrive from my dads) and the other which says GUILTY (not knowing how to make it or the dialect of Mandatoriccio).

reboot

Collage GIF including a drawing of a figure with hands wrapped over its head, picture of debris on a beach, picture of warped plastic curtains and text which reads: Think of the cycle of the day (where the sun rises etc) and the seasons. So east, new beginnings, fresh inspiration, new growth, south the heat of the sun, the busy activity of summer, West, harvesting the rewards of activity, putting things in store for the next cycle, North rest hibernation, reflection, pause.

old and new research

Text overlaid onto an image of lotuses in a pond. Text reads: empty droplets curling into stone crevasses gravity warming to the ground gentle curves around body, kelp encasing sun filtering, passing through me to you nothing (place, person, feeling, thought) to hold us in the peace of presence 1. soften bodies to their nature 2. rub minds with bodies build warmth reborn into void
