Constance Hockaday, is a queer Chilean American artist who grew up on the US/Mexico border. She is a director and visual artist who creates social sculptures, usually in public, about political voice and belonging. At age 19 she joined the Floating Neutrinos, a family of wanderers who sailed around the world in handmade vessels. From them, she learned to use the water as a public platform and began creating solo work on the water in 2011: from a floating boat hotel off the shores of New York City to a floating peepshow in the San Francisco Bay. Her latest project Artists-In-Presidents, brought together 50+ artists to address the nation in Fireside Chat style transmissions alongside the 2020 Presidential Campaign.  Hockaday holds both an MFA in Socially Engaged Art and a Masters in Conflict Resolution. Her work has been supported by Map Fund, Rainin Foundation, Headlands Center of the Arts, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, YBCA, Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto, Mills College Art Museum, Parrish Art Museum, and The Untitled Art Fair. She is a Senior TED Fellow and an artist in residence at UCLA: Center for the Art of Performance.

What water does to our brains

The water, like any of the larger intangible un-holdable natural systems --like sky and weather, will teach you things that will take you forever to learn on land.
