Shelley Galloway, a Semester at Sea Alumna, parent of three voyagers and a Lifelong Learner who has sailed on three full voyages and two partial voyages, member of the Lifelong Learning Council of the Alumni Association, speaks with sound artist Toy Cruz. 

For more information on Troy Cruz's work, visit his website: trcsound.com. 

To see more of Shelley’s work, please visit: shelleyhgalloway.com.

Shelley and Troy discuss the inspiration provided by sound artist, Erik DeLuca who was a professor on Semester at Sea’s Spring Voyage 2015.

Artist Statement on Kintsugi: 
“There is a story to be told with every crack,
every chip . . .welding the past to the
present.”
A Fracture
A Space
A Mis-Remembered Something
An Erasure
A Reduction
Misnamed
Mis-Seen
A Journey Towards Re-assemblage
Finding Parts Along the Way

Scarred, yet healing
Solace/Recognition/Self-Acceptance
Re-Integration
Re-mem-ber-ing

“I want to be loud and drop with a bang”
“I want to be seen, in full resolution”

I am cloaked in invisibility, subordinated by
elements out of my reach.
I am viewed through a lens, that isn’t my own.

Braving the wilderness of uncertainty, vulnerability
and criticism, we become the medicine of our own
healing. Our broken and mended beings become
larger and more valuable because of these flaws that
have been embraced.

Kintsugi is the Japanese art taking shards of broken pottery
rejoining them with bonds of adhesive infused with gold leaf.
Kintsugi embraces the flaws and imperfections of the breaks,
creating an even stronger and more beautiful piece of art. Kintsugi
shows us that scars and breaks are important – they should be

recognized and acknowledged. Each broken object is taken care of
and its past is honored, becoming more precious and beautiful than
before it was broken. There is implied resilience and reverence in
the creation and practice of kintsugi – focus is placed on inner
strength coming from within.

This show will use the metaphor of Kintsugi to show how we all
strive to be “seen” and accepted as whole and as healed and how
our past hurts can only make us stronger and more complete.

My personal journey to personal wholeness involves re-connecting
to the physical, mental and emotional self and re-claiming what has
been lost or sublimated through time and cultural conditioning. I
find touchstones in other people, look to my family’s past, and I
find myself facilitated by moments of liminality and guided by
totems that resonate with me. Shelley Galloway, 2022
