After having seen a documentary about how our human skeletons have been affected and evolved from the time when we lived in the oceans, winking my hands up and down like fish fins.

With all the activity online during the time with covid, my network has expanded. I have participated in numerous webinars, workshops, artistic festivals, and performances online.
I am like endless artists and curators, in these worldwide networks in different art fields, working with the themes and explorations of the more-than-human world, making kin, becoming- with (Donna Haraway), multispecies, entanglement (Karen Barad) Hydrofeminism (Astrida Neimanis) interconnectedness, geo/eco poetry performance, deep listening (Pauline Oliveros), sensuous learning (Sisters Hope), co-existence in multiple ways.
As I am an activist I use www.facebook.com/feliciakonrad
