In Situ: derived from Latin, In Situ refers to a work of art that is made specifically for an exhibition site, taking into account the place where it is set to be installed and displayed. As a result, these works often compliment their surroundings, namely the architecture that frames it. When relocated, these compositions often lose part of their context, elements of their meaning. Remaining in situ is a vital aspect in understanding and interpretation of such artworks.
In Situ, A Podcast considers this in relation to the artist. How visuals are at the heart of a gorgeous, unfolding process where art is a form of living, vice verse. This podcast meets with contemporary artists to discuss projects at the forefront of their focus----to learn how the architecture of daily life affects the way their work moulds to malleable spaces. Livingness.

In Situ, A Podcast: Episode One
My name is Shanley McConnell, host of In Situ. I am currently reading Creative Writing at the University of Oxford, having previously completed an MST in English and Creative Writing from the University of Scotland.
Although I've written short film, prose-memoir, and a couple short stories, I primarily focus on poetry. I was recently awarded second-place in the Sentinel Literary Quarterly Poetry Competition, judged by Terry Jones, followed by a shortlist for the SaveAs International Poetry Competition.
