Another illustration. This one shows how my use of e-ma gives rise to three kinds of data/understanding, which move from a surface understanding (readerly) through a more comprehensive understanding based on contextual knowledge of the painted e-ma, through to semi-fictional narrative (writerly) data.

Yesterday was the first day of our creation intensive at CRIPSiE. I’m sort of stunned.
Yesterday was the first day of our creation intensive at CRIPSiE, and it’s clear that we are on a journey to, well, I don’t know where. And I am happy for that to be the case.
I’m Alice, and I am here for two weeks to create a piece with CRIPSiE. I’ve been waiting for this moment for a while. When I read about CRIPSiE on the web, I was immediately drawn to their stated commitment to crip and…Continue
