Miriam Young is a wordsmith and researcher who thinks of writing as designing. She experiments with forms and fictions to dismantle default thinking and dusty notions. Her research questions why humans struggle to relate with other creatures and how we, as planetary roommates, might unearth alternative ways of living together.
The Sousrealists are a creative research collective on a quest to unpack what lies underneath, unquestioned. As relationship ecologists, we question and subvert the default ways humans relate with ourselves, each other, and fellow lifeforms. By considering the minutiae of our interactions more closely, we can surface the maladaptive value systems and deep-seated assumptions embedded within them.
Through our experiments in performance, multisensorial making, and publishing, we co-create and curate knowledge that prefigures different ways of being together. Our forthcoming publication, the almanac of alterity-attunement weaves together our creative practices and key influences.
