What protects you? Artist Nina Elder’s artwork employs a stream of consciousness list making as a way to think through categories of information and concepts. By responding to the question “What protects you?”, emerging words organized as long lists functions as poems, manifestos and a visual rhythm in 2D artwork. Elder presents her work and how list making vitalizes our responses to large and comprehensive questions in our time. Together we explore how answers to the question “What protects you?” opens up new perspectives, new knowledge and self-reflection. The feedback will result in a 2D work in Anchorage at a later time.
