Welcome to PRAXISfrom wikipedia: Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, practiced, embodied, or realized. “Praxis” may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practicing ideas. On the first day of each month, one of us will post a prompt theme (picked from a group-generated list). Anything big and juicy we can sink our brains into and create responses that would be posted to the blog by the last day of each month. All media is welcome, from typed up thoughts on the theme, to scanned art, to videos of dance/performance art. There is no expectation that this should take mass amounts of time.

One of the biggest privileges of being white in the middle-class USA land I grew up in is that you don’t have to think about race if you don’t want to. Even though it dictates everything from speech to life … Continue reading
Guerrilla gardening. A little war using seeds as weapons–questioning ‘private’ land, borders, fences, and unused land. Throwing grenades made of compost, clay, and seeds into construction sites. Hoping.
