“She drinks a cup of mead and enters Arbor Vitae, wrapped in the blanket with Hare’s ears and Crow’s wings. After 1 hour she returns.”

Karen Spy’s work pays attention to integrity and healing through attentive labour and ritual process. ‘Mindful Actions’ incorporate deep ecology, myth and significant symbolism; these actions are often ‘Emergency Interventions’ – Social Sculpture, with the sole intention of restoring balance.
