The conclusion discusses Lacy's recent projects and interests, as well as her continuing emphasis on the interconnectedness of things—the relationship between the mind and body, body and space, and the reconfiguring of social spaces therein. Beginning from her own body—white, female—Lacy's political commentary and critiques eventually expanded not only to cross-cultural, multiracial boundaries, but also the physical spaces that bind them. There is, after all, a constant connection between the mind and body—one cannot take form without the other—and in this respect the themes of network and exchange so prominent in Lacy's life continue to challenge representation and explore new embodied experiences. Art situates us in the spaces between physical and emotional relationships, challenging us to make sense of these new experiences and act upon them in a way that can change the world for the better.
