Description: Participatory sad penguin painting at an academic panel, sumi ink , small paper cups, paper.
On a panel at the 2013 Ecopoetics conference, I proposed to start the session with participatory sad penguin painting. The conference panel session titled, “Ecopoetics, Object Relations, and Object-Oriented Ontology” included presentations from Anthony Camara, Julia Fiedorczuk, Devin King, Sarah Lewison, Eileen Myles, and Tze-Yin Teo. We, the presenters and the listeners, began by all painting sad penguins together for my fifteen minutes. I invited everyone to continue painting throughout the panel. sad penguins tuned the talks.
