ODE TO THE ARTERIE – 2017 (Burlington, Ontario)

After seeing her work at Daily Tous Les Jours art therapist Sarah Brodie commissioned Muir to produce a short piece for Burlington-based Art Therapy Clinic The Arterie. She created a questionnaire inviting the practitioners (psychotherapists, social workers) to contribute to the lyrical ode she penned and combined it with video capture to create a clip that explained their collective vision.
