Kestral Gaian

Kestral Gaian

kestral Gaian is an author, scriptwriter, and performer based in the United Kingdom. As a self-styled ‘social nerd’ Kestral is one of the regular hosts of popular independent radio comedy show The Geekly Chronicles, a regular guest on podcasts across the internet, and a dab hand at making a sandwich out of anything that happens to be to hand. An activist, pacifist, and strong supporter of diversity, you can often find Kestral speaking at events and fundraising for good causes when not either on the air or nose-to-screen writing.

Counterweights

Travel and stillness. Material objects and abstract creation. Counterweights, the first collected works of Kestral Gaian, is a look into the duality of the world around us: what is, and what could be. With recurrent themes of illness and beauty living side-by-side, Gaian explores the ideas of love being helpless, humanity being destructive, and of change being a constant companion to us all.
