The Movement Journalist | Part 1 | Megan Castro

The Movement Journalist | Part 1 | Megan Castro

Remember when having a journal was actually cool? Instead of filling one up with words and whimsical doodles, how about movement instead? In the advent of the pandemic, Megan Castro set out to create her own version of a journal and has amassed over 29k followers on Instagram since beginning a little over a year ago.  

In the month of Art Media, this episode introduces the nature of one such project and some of the challenges involved temporally, physically and artistically. If you've always wanted to archive movement material, maybe it's high time you opened that movement journal!
