Recoil by Alice Cunningham


Recoil explores the push and pull, the flight and recoiling human urges when faced with difficult emotions. Made when struggling with her feelings of engaging with the environmental crisis and continued through the pandemic while becoming a first-time mother. Recoil speaks of the need of humans to connect and express and strike out while in equal measures to be thoughtful, soft, and grounded. Listen to the audio below to hear more from Alice:
