Episode notes

𝘎𝘪𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘚𝘱𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘓𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨: 𝘍𝘪𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘔𝘦𝘨𝘢𝘍𝘢𝘶𝘯𝘢 is reworked, in the context of the exhibition Listening Stones Jumping Rocks, from Pip Adam’s keynote lecture at the 𝘕𝘨ā 𝘵𝘰𝘩𝘶 𝘰 𝘵𝘦 𝘩𝘶𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘳𝘦: 𝘊𝘰𝘯𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘣𝘦𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘥 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘴𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘦𝘴 conference held at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington in November 2021. As well as featuring discussion of works such as Sorawit Songsataya The Interior it is loosely based on the novel Adam is writing about a group of giant humans banished from earth in a spacecraft powered by sound. Her fictional work explores features of our existing carceral and policing systems and attempts to offer experiences of alternative forms of justice.
