Created as part of my research process, meLand provided a physical and metaphorical space to simultaneously explore porosity and disrupt the socially constructed binary between humans and nature. Collaged through attention to embodied knowing, I used my hands, rather than my thinking mind, to create hills, a background, and eventually, embedded the outline of a human within the artwork (see meLand started, and meLand complete). As I moved through the process of collaging and writing, I often traversed back and forth across epistemological, and sometimes ontological, divides, moving from a Western dualistic ontology that assumes rocks are inanimate, and matter consists of independent structures (McMaster & Greene, 2003, n.p.), to one that assumes everything is animate and just might be made up of a vast network of vibrating strings.
