About the part that art plays in a globalising society

Framer Framed

Homing (Charlaine Reval & Laura O’Neill)

Homing is an arts and educational collective, between behavioural psychologist Charlaine Reval and Rijksakademie alumni Laura O’Neill (RA 17/18). Their ongoing investigations and projects focus on collaborations with local and global communities, where the relationship between nature/human/technology is key.

Charlaine Reval worked for years in special education and is currently a behavioral psychologist in youth care. Working through behavioural therapies, group coaching and self growth publications, she co-developed the communal platform Homing to engage non-standardised art with unconventional forms of education. She believes it is important to act purposefully in everything you do and try to achieve goals from there. How nice would it be to create an alternate reality together with fun projects?

Laura O’Neill‘s (b1990. Wigan) work can currently be found in collections: Rechtbank, Amsterdam and Bos der Onverzettelijken Almere. Commissions include Memory of the Lost Crew in Action WW2 Memorial by Gemeente Almere 2021 by GMCA, Manchester in 2020 and Mexico City Metro, Mexico City in 2015.
