Artist's notes:

In an email the day prior, Laresa sounds nervous about the task. When we begin, and after my introduction/instruction monologue, she feels less reticent and the exercise flows easily. We find ourselves in a terrain of common taste, which is reassuring but sometimes the flow is foreseeable. For a long time, only female artists are recalled. There is space for playfulness and a sense of gentle negotiation. I feel bound to remembering peers at times and am irritated at myself for limiting the conversation. Laresa begins with Hilma Af Klint.
