TEDxHouston 2011 - Carrie Schneider

Carrie is a contemporary artist working on several projects around the city. In this TEDxHouston talk, she announced her latest project which empowers Houstonians to tell and share the stories of their city. The project website is live here: http://hearourhouston.com/Via her website: " I see artists as activators, free agents, problem solvers, tricksters, healers, liminal space dwellers and conduits for change. I use art to invent ceremony, mark meaning, and reconfigure memory in my personal experience. When this process succeeds as a catharsis, I manifest it in a parallel public practice. I borrow from my experiences with developmental psychology, the Southern Baptist church, rural Texas towns and the concrete hyperbole of Houston, generous communities found where I travel, and contemporary tango culture. In my recent history I spent half of a year as the primary caretaker for my terminally ill mother, and then another half in recovery from surgeries myself. I am using art to graft this experience into the commons by examining the roles of caregiver/carereceiver through experimental movement."
