This visual essay traverses ways of knowing, doing, being and becoming together. In juxtaposing sharp and ambiguous detail with shadow and light spaces between figure and place, we can sit in and with the slippage between uncertainty and clarity. Achieving ‘slipperiness’ (Deleuze & Guatarri, 1988) is contingent upon our ability to adopt dynamic mindsets and practices that can anticipate shifting agendas for people and place. It is here at this flight/fight threshold that this visual essay elicits narratives that permeate the ‘where to from here’ of individual and collective navigations of climate curiosity.
Where to from here (MacDonald, 2021) comprised seven large oil paintings exhibited at the Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery in Tasmania, Australia from September 25th, 2021 – January 14th 2022. ‘Where to’ questions permeate my own becoming curious in and through creative practice in place. This Arts-Based Education Research emerges from the convergence of my lived experience and perspective as a climate curious artist, teacher and parent.
