In the times of the birth of AI, we shall focus on how to be good ancestors. This painting is a meditation on being a multitude, creating safe and inclusive trans-species spaces, and the protection of Mary's Cape. The tent (Mary's Cape) is a symbol for the flux of migration and our groundless, floating, free-falling 'state': the shapeshifting that veils the loss and price we pay for the capital. We need to bring the seeds of slowing down, listening, and taking care. My drawings are translations and offerings of my privileges and the love that I was built of.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
The relationship between the real and virtual is personally significant to Judit, as she has moved between several different countries and cultures in her lifetime and relies on digital means to connect to people and places in an attempt to construct ‘home.’
