In this Print Speak session: A Print Speak Designed to Exist in Passing Time, K. MacNeil discusses their artistic practice at the intersection of print and performance. MacNeil traces how these mediums have developed in their work as a means of exploring themes of trauma, illness, and gender identity. Integrating the foundational concepts of print alongside embodied mark-making, performance, and video-based media, this talk examines how all these diverse media intersect and their aims to push the definition of print into further dimensions.
