Care Index (Presence of Mind) was created over a series of digital residencies with a working group of Australia and Singapore-based artists, writers and curators involved in Presence of Mind: Alecia Neo, Cindy Yuen-Zhe Chen, Kath Fries, Dylan Goh, Rachael Kiang, Kristina Mah, Aryadharma Aaron Matheson, Shirley Soh, Lachlan Warner. During the residency, the group explored activities and exchanged reflections on contemplative practices, hospitalities and care through the lens of Buddhism.
At the end of the digital residency, a series of video scores was created by the working group. Each score offers a meditation on initiations, dwelling and departures.
These scores are also presented at the Presence of Mind group exhibition in art gallery, alongside an Open Call for public submissions.
