Soma is defined as the body as well as the imagination within the body. Utopia is described as “no place” yet also “a field.” If our bones hold our history, where do we find our next direction? In this strange time of pandemic re-emergence, are we moving back into what we knew or forward into other futures? Perhaps it is in a suspension of time, in our dreams, in that place of no place, a field…
