Lemon Curd is an e-zine that creates a space for thoughts and gestures to exist, grow and evolve. It is through self-speculation, and contemplation of the environment we live in that we can attempt to critically engage with the intricate complexities of our nature.
What is meant by ‘nature’? Human nature is not a fixed idea that supports the status quo or socio-conservative values. Explore our nature as an intricate landscape of being and the relationships that form and unfold within it. This is what is intriguing, these different narratives that are born as you come into contact with the world.
We evolve collectively, entangled and integrated within an interdependent ecosystem. We can expand critical thought by bridging the gap between our theoretical, practical and sensuous modes of being. Through dialogue, we can open up possibilities and grow generosity in a process of learning how to live better together.
Every small detail of life is worth looking into, because they each form the endlessly transforming fabric of our existence. Reflect on these details that make up life. Speculate - self-speculate, imagine, think about, appreciate or question your surroundings, the things you feel, hear, taste, smell and see.
This is a collective endeavour to start conversations to uncover alternative stories in the most inclusive and organic way possible. We want to know what's on your mind and why.
