Kerry Hawk Lessard is an anthropologist, activist, writer and counselor as well as an all around inspirational force to be reckoned with.
We gathered the pieces for this video installation from anthropologists in various stages of their careers working in applied and academic settings around the world. Hoping to share a wide range of insights, we gave them a simple request: to define the terms “embodied” and/or “ecological” and/or “heritage” as they related to their own work, and to each other. Asking them to self-record a conversational-style monologue, we hoped to convey the fluidity of the terms and concepts they represent, while capturing their personal connections and applications of our installation’s theme, “embodied ecological heritage.”
