IAMD, OCAD University

Elyse Longair was born in Lethbridge AB and completed her BFA in Visual arts and Art History in Victoria BC (2011). Longair is currently an IAMD student in Toronto ON. She uses worldbuilding, speculative design and science-fiction collages as a conduit to forward our thinking and planning for equitable cross-cultural preferred futures.

Mindfulness in Isolation:

Take 5 deep, slow, deliberate breaths; really following each breath as it enters and leaves your body.

5. Look around and slowly and intentionally notice five things that you can see.

4. Listen carefully and notice four things that you can hear.

3. Notice three things that you can feel in contact with your body.

2. Inhale and engage with two scents that you smell.

1. Be aware of one thing you are tasting.

See if you can take this kind awareness and openness through to the next moments of your art practice.
