Patricia L. Boyd's work reflects on social, economic, material and institutional circulations of energy and resources, as well as on the "internal" circulations of human bodies (digestive,
relational) situated within them. The focus is not just on the finished work, but on the conditions that the work is formed by, and through which the work passes, during its production, reproduction and reception.
