Foreign Bodies is a platform for rewiring dialogue and opening channels between research in the realms of care and culture; impacting how policy is developed and socially engaged art is practiced through reciprocal knowledge sharing.

Foreign Bodies has been developed by Karisa Senavitis and Kevin O’Neill, a design/research partnership referred to as Will Work for Good. Foreign Bodies was initiated while at the Jan van Eyck Acadamie (NL) as part of their practice of “way(out)finding.” Way(out)finding is defined as generating and transmitting knowledge that is contained, wayward or lost. Recently they were part of a multi-year program developing outcome-driven global public health initiatives where they facilitated conversations with small groups of stakeholders, documented the process, curated readings and encouraged institutional critiques by way of design.
