My work in mobilities is extensive, pervasive, perpetual, as my body-mind-place shifts. I explore mobilities in relation to the body (running as an arts and humanities discourse; running studies, running artfully, plus some swimming, drowning, rolling, skipping and jumping), mind (ADHD, mind wandering, across neurodivergent creative research, arts-health and art-psychiatry), and all the entangled spaces between the body-mind and with other body-minds, in relation to place, borders, boundaries (physical, geopolitical, disciplinary, cultural, metaphorical, existential etc etc etc such as via concept of ‘islandhopping’). More generally I think about mobilities in relation to systems, and in resistance to social status quo.. My work in 2022 in mobilities includes 2 encyclopaedia entries for a peer-reviewed Handbook (Edward Elgar), a running and art anthology, and articulating ‘Tentacular Pedagogy’ which I first proposed at a Elia keynote (2021).
