Camlia Galaz’s STUDIO VLOG tracks our changing connection to productivity from the position of an artist. Being an artist often means having a complex relationship with work and output – artmaking can function in a person’s life as an emotional anchor. How do we understand ourselves as artists as we move deeper into isolation, away from the studio, away from work, away from physical space? Do we need to recreate the demands and structure of productivity even when the world stops?
