Genuinely Seeking is a compendium of visual art and writing that addresses our notion of time, and critically disturbs our attitude of it in work processes. It is aimed at embedding practices of support and interdependence, a meditation on alternative approaches to time and process, that will hopefully initiate a broader conversation.

To be interdependant is to have a dependancy on one another, we are interdependant beings, existing and indeed thriving in tangled webs of mutal reliance - Cara Farnan’s drawing invitation allows us to reflect on our interconnectedness. This recognises and fosters systems of social collaboration and can imbue values like loyalty, empathy, conviction and a commonality to a cause
