We included no lens-based media among the objects available, to emphasize forms of seeing, hearing, and touching that exceed our relationship to screens.

Woolard’s vision of artistic practice as something that is continually made and remade through its participants, as an ethical force to penetrate our unconscious ways of being with one another, has since only become more urgent.

Woolard's practice remains an ethical force to shift and redirect our unconscious ways of being.
