Irrespective of the amount of money involved, whether it is client work, commissioned, or original, a prototype or published, our projects become part of us, and the world. Our world is on fire. What does that mean? What have we done? And what can we dream up? This talk treats what we create in our artistic practice, industry and in our everyday lives as having equal incantation qualities. Through an exploration of personal and standardised narrative design practices, we’ll venture into our lives as art-with-GAIA.
