She earned a BFA in 2008 and is currently completing a Master of Fine Arts at Concordia University.

In this episode Celia discusses practices of looking; the secret life of inanimate objects; self-referentiality and the experience of time; travelling with art; the frame of the camera as a space of exploration; the politics of being an artist; and the importance of defamiliarization.

This episode was hosted and produced by Yaniya Lee.
