Inter/dependence is a 20-page zine sharing the findings of a survey I conducted, the Artists’ Personal Impacts Survey. I asked over 112 visual artists 40 questions on the positive psychological benefits of their art practices. ]

Respondents emphasized relatedness via connection, community, and collaboration.

A subset of respondents who self-organized activities had stronger opinions, were more active, and were more likely to stay active. 

Inside:

  • Essay connecting survey findings with research by positive psychologists Chris Peterson and Sonja Lyubomirsky, among others.
  • 9 data visualizations  

Inter/dependence was developed as part of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Process Space artist residency program in 2015.
