I feel like I’ve had a real connection with Jesse. She made me realise something about my work that I didn’t see before but was doing subconsciously. It was the thing she said about the link between the body and sound. Definitely making me think more about my sound work. Maybe something to do with showing how you feel on the inside, but outward, like she and I were talking about. I also felt a connection during the talk when Jesse was talking about the troubles in Ireland. Idk why. Maybe it’s because I have relatives who lived through the troubles? Like it’s not something that affects me directly but my gran talks about it. These little stories that you hear from real people really interest me and influence my own practice because that’s kinda what I do with my work. I tell my story of my life as a trans person to educate people on the trans experience. I love stories about real human experiences.
