Writer in Residence – Kelley McKenna

While at NES, I’ll be working on a collection of poetry and photographic images that address the shifting dynamics in the female body when hormonal fluctuations begin to alter a once known entity–one’s own self–into something unrecognizable. Transformations in the natural world that happen on a daily basis in extreme climates and geographies like Iceland, and transformations happening because of what we’re doing to our beautiful planet, mirror what I’m experiencing in my own aging process: a transmutation of the body and a cataclysm of heat creating a violent expulsion of a former self. It feels like devastation.
